This text approaches the Bible in light of recent findings on the use of the Hebrew alphabet as a deliberate and meaningful choice. Sanders connects the Bible's distinctive linguistic form to a cultural desire to speak directly to people, summoning them to join a new community that the text itself helped call into being.
