Brennan W. Breed claims that biblical interpretation should focus on the shifting capacities of the text, viewing it as a dynamic process rather than a static product. Rather than seeking to determine the original text and its meaning, Breed proposes that scholars approach the production, transmission, and interpretation of the biblical text as interwoven elements of its overarching reception history. Grounded in the insights of contemporary literary theory, this approach alters the framing questions of interpretation from "What does this text mean?" to "What can this text do?"

MEDIA REVIEWS
Nomadic Text will undoubtedly be a crucial contribution to the future directions of biblical studies, as well as to understanding what biblical studies has, in one sense, always already been doing. * Modern Believing *
Breed's theoretically rich and engaging methodology will be useful to anyone interested in how texts are interpreted and deployed in social life. * New Books Network *
Brennan Breed's Nomadic Text is not just a theory of biblical reception history, but is also a reevaluation of text criticism and its search for the original text. . . [He] makes a compelling argument that all biblical interpretation is reception history.1.2 Oct. 2014 * Journal of the Bible and Its Reception *
