This paper is a qualitative content analysis exploring how Bibliodrama is therapeutic as a potential therapeutic method to be used with the church population. The Bibliodrama referred to in this paper is the dramatization of Biblical scripture for therapeutic purposes. Two seminal Bibliodrama texts, Peter Pitzele’s (1998) Scripture Windows: Toward a Practise of Bibliodrama and Bjorn Krondorfer’s (1992) Body and Bible: Interpreting and Experiencing Biblical Narratives were explicitly and implicitly coded for the existence of Irvin Yalom’s (1995) therapeutic factors and Phil Jones’ (2007) dramatherapy core therapeutic processes. The author found over half of Yalom’s eleven therapeutic factors and Jones’ eight core processes to be explicitly present within the coded texts. Thus, Bibliodrama appears to contain many of the basic therapeutic elements outlined by Jones and Yalom and therefore may be a beneficial therapeutic method to employ with the church population.
