Synopsis: In the work of such major theologians as Lesslie Newbigin and Stanley Hauerwas, the “Christian story” is communal, and the individual Christian achieves meaning only through participation in this communally recounted narrative. While Alan Jacobs acknowledges the importance of the communal story, he suggests that something has been neglected in the development of narrative theology -- the narrative dimension of individual Christian lives.

Looking Before and After encourages us to ask how individual lives can, in a specifically Christian sense, be meaningful, how we can discern and rightly interpret those meanings, and how we might tell our own stories in ways that avoid the dangers of presumption and despair. In his typically beautiful writing style, Jacobs here reinvigorates narrative theology and demonstrates the power of individual life stories well told and properly understood.

About the Author: Alan Jacobs is distinguished professor of literature at BaylorUniversity, Waco, Texas. His many other books include Original Sin: A Cultural History, LookingBefore and After: Testimony and the Christian Life,A Visit to Vanity Fair, Shaming theDevil, and The Narnian: The Life andImaginationof C.
