Drawing on the theory of language developed by the Soviet critic Mikhail Bakhtin, this book argues that the historically diverse writings of the Bible have been organized according to a concept of dialogue. The overriding concern with an ongoing communication between God and his people has
been formally embodied, Reed shows, in the continuous conversation between one part of the Bible and another. Reed looks beyond the close readings of recent accounts of the Bible as literature to larger paradigms of communication in the Hebrew Bible and the Christian New Testament. He considers the
Bible in its different canonical states, distinguishing the genres of law, prophecy, and wisdom in the Hebrew Bible and describing how these earlier forms of divine and human communication are appropriated and answered by the New Testament genre of gospel. The dialogic character of the Bible is also
discovered within individual books: patriarchal answers to primeval failures in Genesis, cross-talk between justice and providence in Job, and orchestration of judgment and worship in Revelation. Throughout this wide-ranging study, Reed demonstrates the surprising relevance of Bakhtin's ideas of
literature and language to the biblical writings as they assume formal coherence within the canon.

Reed weaves an intriguing interpretation of Genesis by bringing several of the internal narratives into conversation...Reed succeeds in creating a refreshing reading of the texts (and the text) of the Bible. His observations are measured and sober while being innovative and challenging. This book could be used with great success in both graduate and undergraduate settings. It also provides some interesting pedagogical strategies for teaching the dreaded biblicalsurvey course. Reed's book represents an important new voice in the dialogue on the Bible as literature.
