Newheart, Michael Willett. (2004). My name is Legion: the story and soul of the Gerasene demoniac. Collegeville, MN: The Liturgical Press.

Writing for the Interfaces series, designed to introduce non-professionals to methods in biblical study, Michael Willett Newheart uses a combination of narrative criticism, psychological biblical criticism and his own “soul hermeneutic” to explore the story of the Gadarene demoniac in Mark. Psychological approaches include Freud, Jung, Rene Girard and Fritz Fanon. See the more extensive reviews by Kamila Blessing and D. Andrew Kille at the Review of Biblical Literature. (DAK)
