Review of Biblical Literature -
"Bal characterizes the book as an essay. . . . As such, it achieves fascinating intercultural readings that respect the integrity of each text and artifact studied. Her distinction between literalist and fundamental reading is a significant contribution that I hope biblical studies will take up. . . . An excellent model for interpreters who would interpret biblical texts and other 'versionings' beyond the strictures of assessing influence or source appropriation. Bal’s kind of reading both reads and catches reading in action, and our present experience of interpretation is our best, fullest case for how it is done at any time."
