Review


"This is a timely addition to the current, fast-growing discussion of the Bible as Literature....A positive and stimulating contribution....The application of Bakhtin's methodology to the literary study of the Bible is an achievement of capital importance for which Reed deserves to be warmly commended."--Harold Fisch


"One would have to turn to Northrop Frye's treatment of the Bible in, for example, The Great Code, to fine a study that matches Reed's exemplary literary-cultural reading. Reed's account makes the Bible do as much for Bakhtin as the other way round; indeed, his explication of Bakhtin's interpretive principles in light of biblical hermeneutics demonstrates and clarifies yet another aspect of that critic's immensely versatile approach. At the same time, Reed shows persuasively how the 'dialogic' nature of biblical narrative informs our academic and personal responses to what remains the west's dominant sacred text. Dialogues of the Word can already be found in the bibliographies of established scholars and graduate students in literary, biblical, and religious studies. It makes fascinating and valuable reading for non-specialists as well."--Robert Detweiler, Emory University


"Reed's book makes a major contribution to the rehabilitation of the ancient alliance between scripture study and the study of rhetoric. That alliance was discarded in the rise of positivism, and now the restoration is under way. Reed shows how Bakhtin's literary theories open the density of the text and so invite to a quite fresh re-reading. The book is a most attractive introduction to new reading."--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary


"By displaying how the diversity of the Bible can be synthesized through dialogic relations among its parts, Reed furnishes a method by which both Biblical and literary scholars can greatly profit."--Weber Studies


"[A] fine and timely study....Reed's prodigious research, fine discernment of connections, and persuasive arguments are impressive and helpful....His thoughtful dialogue with the Word, and one's own with his, proves fruitful."--The Cresset
