What is the place of the bible in the postmodern world? I face this question at the confluence of three postmodern currents: skepticism toward metanarratives, call to embrace heterogeneity, and drive to make sense of the displacement of, and our distanciation from, sites of meaning and identity. I argue that the bible has a place in the postmodern world and call for storytelling as a way of facing the currents of postmodernity. Storytelling is one way of assuring that our narratives do not slip out of sight, and an effective way to interweave our narratives with those of others. Moreover, storytelling can enable Christians to maintain unity in faithful diversity.
