"Narrative criticism is best understood as one key among several that are available to biblical interpreters. Used properly, it is able to open some doors and grant access to certain kinds of insight that may not be otherwise attainable. But it will not open all the doors or answer all the questions that people ask about the Bible and about the meaning of biblical material."
Mark Allan Powell, "Narrative Criticism," in .Hearing the New Testament, 2nd ed., ed. Joel B. Green (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2010), 254.
