"Few persons have taught us [how] to read Scripture as well as Donald Juel. His passion for the text is everywhere apparent as he teaches us to risk seeing the text differently. No one has brought that narrative to life better than this faithful servant. These essays and sermons are a perduring legacy of great value."
--Patrick D. Miller, Charles T. Haley Professor of Old Testament Theology Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary
"This collection shows Juel at his very best. Here you will find a humble and very much real Christian."
--Alan F. Segal (1945-2011) was Professor of Religion and Ingeborg Rennert Professor of Jewish Studies, Barnard College
"An inspiring read for those whose passion, like Juel's, is for God and for the Bible as God's living, unsettling address."
--Janet Soskice, Professor of Philosophical Theology and Fellow of Jesus College, University of Cambridge
"Across the years of his much too short career, Juel demonstrated that reading scripture in Christian communities is an endlessly intriguing, bewildering, and nurturing journey. This book will refresh the minds of those who studied alongside him and invite a new generation of interpreters to pack their bags and travel along with him."
--Beverly Roberts Gaventa, Helen H.P. Manson Professor of New Testament Literature and Exegesis, Princeton Theological Seminary

This compilation is pure Don Juel, to the core. Again, he asks the reader to take a chance on reading and hearing Scripture anew. He urges us to hear it over again, with new ears and new willingness to imagine God's voice speaking to us in unexpected ways.
This book gives each of us an excellent opportunity to grow our faith in new directions, building strength and renewing belief as we go.
I enthusiastically commend it to you.
