Product Description

Old Testament Scholar Walter Brueggemann presents this compelling faith exploration and develops the contemporary significance and relevance of the Old Testament prophets as uncredentialed purveyors of covenant and moral coherence in a world of power, money and violence. In keeping with the format established by two earlier editions, this new Embracing study engages participants with two components: (1) A DVD, here featuring five 10-15 minute presentations by Walter Brueggemann, followed by additional video of Walter interacting with a small, diverse group of adults as they respond and discuss the topics, and (2) a participant workbook containing all the material needed by class participants as well as for the facilitator.

Publisher's Description

Walter Brueggemann, arguably America’s leading Old Testament scholar and theologian, takes us on a wild ride through the poetic prophecy of the Hebrew Scripture, identifying cultural contexts, putting a framework to Israel’s history, and, most significantly—and times challengingly!—drawing connections between Israel’s sociological, economic and spiritual status and that of America today.

What was the message of these remarkable poet-prophets in their own time and place? What is their message for us today? Who are today’s prophetic voices? How has the contemporary church been coopted by culture? What steps can we take to reclaim the prophetic message of distributive justice, nonviolence, loss and hope? And what is your role in bringing God’s perspective to today’s society?
 
Each of the six sessions begins with a 10-15 minute video presentation by Walter Brueggemann, followed by filmed interaction with a diverse small group. This Participant’s Workbook then helps your own local small group “join the conversation.” It includes all study materials needed by participants an those who lead. Each participant will need one copy.
SOLD SEPARETLY. Embracing the Prophets in Contemporary Culture DVD.
