"... ÂNot in Heaven is valuable, not only to professional Bible scholars but to all who love the Book of books. If there are seventy faces to the Torah, as the midrash claims, this book illuminates several more."Â —Conservative Judaism

"A stimulating collection."Â —Literature and Theology

"In short, this collection of essays offers a variety of literary responses to the problems of biblical exegesis, and contributes positively to the dialogue between the two disciplines. No scholar interested in the Bible as literature can afford to ignore it." —Cithara

Distinguished literary critics and biblical scholars illuminate texts from the creation accounts of Genesis to the parables of Mark, addressing questions such as the interpretive tensions within the text and relationships between literature and ideology.

The contributors are Robert Alter, Adele Berlin, John Drury, Bernard M. Levinson, William T. McBride, James C. Nohrnberg, James A. Sanders, Regina Schwartz, Meir Sternberg, and Phyllis Trible.
