Walter Brueggemann has been one of the leading voices in Hebrew Bible interpretation for decades; his landmark works in Old Testament theology have inspired and informed a generation of students, scholars, and preachers. Disruptive Grace brings his erudition to bear on those practices-- prophecy, lament, prayer, faithful imagination, and a holy economics-- that alone may usher in a humane and peaceful future for our cities.
Carolyn Sharp's introductions to each section highlight the characteristic themes of Brueggemann's oeuvre that come to expression in these chapters. The result is more than an encounter with the ever-challenging word of Scripture; Disruptive Grace also offers an introduction to the thought of a brilliant, passionate, and incisive interpreter of the Hebrew Bible.
