Description

These studies on the prophetic texts from the Hebrew Bible cover a wide range of topics, challenging the reader to confront the issues of faithfulness, responsibility, and justice in an ever-changing world. Brueggemann explores how these prophetic traditions have the potential to continually resonate in our contemporary communities and individual lives. Rather than "dead words" to kingdoms no longer in existence, the Israelite and Judean prophets have an enduring impact on how God challenges our values, our perspectives—and our very lives. Brueggemann has become well known for providing fresh perspective on ancient texts, always in conversation with great thinkers and people of faith.

Endorsements

"Widely published author Walter Brueggemann delves into ancient texts and contemporary consciousness, inviting the reader to rediscover these Scriptures and their radical implications. Perhaps not a comfortable read, but a challenging one nonetheless, from one of today's leading Old Testament theologians."
