'White's concern with divine speech and with the characterization of God is decidedly new. I know of no other work that pursues the topic in such a significant and systematic manner. White has opened up an area for future study and debate, and his work is sure to be the starting point for some time to come.' Peter D. Miscall, Saint Thomas' Theological Seminary, Denver
"White's readings are decidedly original without displacing entirely the insights gained from more widely practiced methods of literary or historically oriented study. White joins the relatively few biblical scholars who have successfully integrated sophisticated and mature philosophical reflection with careful literary reading. By the shear forces of this work, he challebges on the one hand those professional readers who impatiently decry any need of tough-minded theory, and on the other hand, those who malign the theorists as unskilled, or uninterested, in serious reading. It is a stunning acheivement." Journal of the American Academy of Religion
