This article follows upon an earlier article ('Preaching: where we've been', Consensus 8,3-11 Ja 82). Developments in communication, technology, hermeneutics and myth directed preaching to understand itself as 'event' and therefore to shape itself as 'story'. The narrative form can carry the varied and contradictory realities and mysteries of life as no rational 'system' can, and is true to the prime genre of the Bible. While the work of keener definition remains to be done, narrative preaching demonstrates the power to give people a better 'story to live by'.
