This chapter discusses the wisdom and genius of contemporary Jewish writer Harold Bloom. It explains that Bloom could provide a much-needed balance for Jewish–Christian dialogue because such a dialogue is not just about religion but about life. It suggests that reading Bloom's represent a shared experience of reading and writing. This chapter also examines Bloom's theological beliefs and some of his most notable works which include The Western Canon, Genius, and Where Can Wisdom Be Found?

Keywords:   Harold Bloom, Jewish writer, Jewish–Christian dialogue, theological beliefs
