Description

These twenty-two sermons from a master interpreter demonstrate how ancient texts can speak to the whole gamut of human experience even now. Included in Walter Brueggemann's preview are keen observations about the timeless issues of human life, both personal and social: the pain we face, often inflicted on each other; the use and abuse of power; the weakness and fragility of life; the redemptive power of faith; and much more.

Excerpts

"I hope that the interpretive lens I have pursued here -- the linkages of Old Testament and New Testament, the epicenter of the Bible for the church, the enterprises of speech as generative of life, and the capacity of the gospel to give life in a world bent on destruction -- are suggestive and supportive of those who preach and those who listen."
--from the Preface
