Drawing upon the pioneering work of the British theologian David Brown who argues for a non-static, `moving text' that reaches beyond the biblical canon, this volume brings together twelve interdisciplinary essays, as well as a response from Brown. With essays ranging from New Testament textual criticism to the fiction of David Foster Wallace, The Moving Text provides an introduction to Brown and the Bible that will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as specialists in a wide range of fields. Contributions include: Ian Boxall (The Catholic University of America) "From the Magi to Pilate's Wife: David Brown, Tradition and the Reception of Matthew's Text," Robert MacSwain (The University of the South) "David Brown and Eleonore Stump on Biblical Interpretation," Aaron Rosen (Rocky Mountain College) "Revisions of Sacrifice: Abraham in Art and Interfaith Dialogue," Dennis F. Kinlaw III (Houston Baptist University) "The Forms of Faith in Contemporary American Fiction".

MEDIA REVIEWS
David Brown has long taught us that to sense the ongoing dialogue between God and humanity, we need to become aware that God speaks not only through scripture but through tradition, imagination, and discipleship; and further that God communicates not only through the Church (or the synagogue) but also through people outside these orbits: artists and writers, secular and pagan. In this collection of essays, a wide variety of scholars take up Brown's insights, fleshing them out through lucid interpretations of biblical texts, art, and literature. These rich discussions, along with a response and four sermons from Brown himself, render this collection essential reading for biblical and theological scholars as well as for people of faith seeking to hear God's voices in unexpected places. -- Benjamin Sommer
'This is a rich, varied and thought-provoking treasure trove for the academically inclined preacher: a glimpse into the rarefied world of peer-reviewed interdisciplinary academic debate. It is not an easy read, nor is it a book to be devoured at one sitting. It is almost certain to extend the reader's knowledge, and vocabulary!' -- Dr Anne Davidson Lund, Reader in the Diocese of Chester
