The philosopher Emmanuel Levinas writes that each act of listening carries the secret of the text; the voice of Revelation, in precisely the inflection lent by each person's ear, is necessary for the truth of the Whole. Levinas's interpretive insights have already had a profound impact on European thought, both in the realm of ethics and of hermeneutics. This volume is the first in English to show how his contribution can also transform the ways we read biblical texts. The essays collected here introduce Levinas to those not familiar with his work and exemplify how his approach to texts illumines new and significant possibilities for reading the Bible afresh.
