John the Baptist in life and death : audience-oriented criticism of Matthewʹs narrative by Gary Yamasaki( )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a narrative about Jesus, a character like John the Baptist would not be expected to play a role much beyond that of providing a baptism for Jesus. Yet the Matthaean narrator finds several other uses for John in the development of the narrative, not only while he is still alive, but also after he is dead. In examining John's role, Yamasaki deploys an audience-oriented critical methodology, an approach that chronicles the narrator's efforts to influence first-time readers' experience of the narrative as they proceed sequentially through the text. He traces John's characterization as 'forerunn
Perspective criticism : point of view and evaluative guidance in biblical narrative by Gary Yamasaki( )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Countless times in the Bible readers are presented with a report of a character engaged in some action, but no explicit indication from the storyteller on how the action is to be evaluated. At first glance, it would appear the readers are being left to fend for themselves in making an evaluation. Fortunately, according to Yamasaki, that is not the case, for, he argues, though the readers are not receiving explicit evaluative guidance, they may be receiving guidance in a less-obvious fashion through the way in which point of view is being used in the passage. Gary Yamasaki's bold new work sets out a new biblical methodology called Perspective Criticism, an approach designed to uncover evaluative guidance that may be encoded in the point-of-view crafting of biblical narratives
Insights from filmmaking for analyzing biblical narrative by Gary Yamasaki( )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, Gary Yamasaki develops an innovative approach to biblical narrative, exploring the way stories are treated in filmmaking and using that as a model for analyzing biblical stories. In our culture, the voluminous exposure we have to movies has resulted in our being conditioned to experience cinematic stories in a particular manner: for example, seeing them as events rather than objects and the story worlds of movies as distinct from the real world. However, biblical stories are not typically viewed through this cinematic-story lens, making our analysis of biblical narrative out of step with what has become our natural mode of experiencing stories. This book demonstrates how fresh interpretive insights emerge when we read biblical stories like we watch movies. - back of book
