Thomas Cooper points out in the preface that "for many years, Navone has been investigating the role of storytelling in Scripture, in theology, and in the formation of spiritually mature Christians .... He has been constructing a Method in Theology, conducting an investigation into why we do theology and what would be the conditions of this fruitfulness .... It is Navone's special task and talent to be able to help us think about our theology and storytelling."
