Item description for Jesus, Story of God: John's Story of Jesus by Derek Tovey...
In a carefully constructed story, the writer of John's Gospel reveals the identity of Jesus, and explores what it means to believe in Jesus, and to belong to him. Written for ordinary readers and beginning students of the Gospel, this book discusses the way the story has been crafted and the 'tricks' of the storyteller's trade. The aim is to stimulate the reader's own reading and study of the Gospel, and to see Jesus who, in revealing God, is himself 'the story of God'.

Derek is a brilliant scholar! I was taught John's Gospel (and Ephesians and Colossians) by him, so I'm biased, but all the same, the book is great. The opening chapter has a great imaginative scene, which I must one year (with acknowledgment) turn into a drama out our midnight Christmas eve service when we retell/read the prologue to John's Gospel. Get this while you can and add it to your collection. It is useful for preaching ideas and using with your congregations
