What Is This Babbler Trying to Say?
Essays on Biblical Interpretation
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"For more than three decades, Michael Moore has shed light on the social worlds behind, and the imaginative worlds within and arising from, biblical texts. Moving from discrete exegetical problems to the life patterns of communities of faith, these essays model an approach to biblical scholarship that says to all, 'come and enjoy this for yourself.' We may all be grateful that Moore has invited us to share the fruits of his labors."
--Mark Hamilton, Onstead Professor of Biblical Studies, Graduate School of Theology,
Abilene Christian University
"Drawing upon the breadth and depth of his knowledge of ancient Near Eastern studies, modern biblical scholarship, and numerous methodologies, Moore traverses the range of genres within the Bible, yielding new understanding. The collection of essays exhibits uniformly philological, literary, and historical richness. Torrents of insights flow from these essays."
--Joel Gereboff, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Arizona State University
