Through stories, quotes, vignettes, and notes, Fewell provides different kinds of reading experiences, with different levels of coherence and disjunction, depending on how much the reader decides to delve into the critical apparatus or the framing dialogues. This work is designed to unsettle, to plant suggestions and questions, and to create space for reflection and conversation.

It is an experiment to see if a postmodern reading of the Bible can provide a credible ethical vision that can inspire us to do a better job of caring for our children.The ways in which Fewell addresses the theme is inspiring. The text is imaginatively crafted and skillfully written. --Leslie J. Francis, from The Expository Times, volume 116, Number 8, May 2005
