Description

In these essays, Walter Brueggemann addresses the necessity for thinking about the shape and structure of Old Testament theology—and for the impact such thinking can have on the larger issues of contemporary life.

Brueggemann draws on the work of persons from all disciplines and incorporates them in a seminal way in his theology. The work of persons in theology, psychology, the social sciences, politics, and the like often provides heuristic possibilities and even basic models for talking about the Old Testament. The Old Testament is seen to be something that has intelligible and significant worldly connections.
