Product Description

In Texts Under Negotiation, Walter Brueggemann issues a passionate call for a bold restructuring of the imagination of faith in our "postmodern" context. He contends that we need not construct a full alternative world, but rather to fund - to provide the pieces, materials, and resources out of which a new world can be imagined. The place of liturgy and proclamation is "a place where people come to receive new materials, or old materials freshly voiced, which will fund, feed, nurture, nourish, legitimate, and authorize a counterimagination of the world.

Publisher's Description

Walter Brueggemann issues a passionate call for a bold restructuring of the imagination of faith in our "postmodern" context.Old assumptions-rational, objectivist, absolutist-have for the most part given way to new outlooks, which can be grouped under the term postmodern. What does this new situation imply for the church and for Christian proclamation? Can one find in this new situation opportunity as well as dilemma? How can central biblical themes-self, world, and community-be interpreted and imagined creatively and concretely in this new context?Our task, Brueggemann contends, is not to construct a full alternative world, but rather to fund-to provide the pieces, materials, and resources out of which a new world can be imagined. The place of liturgy and proclamation is "a place where people come to receive new materials, or old materials freshly voiced, which will fund, feed, nurture, nourish, legitimate, and authorize a conterimagination of the world." Six exegetical examples of such a new approach to the biblical text are included.

    Katherine Ellis
    I found the first half of this book very enlightening and entirely convincing. Postmodernity is the new context whose features are clearly laid out here, and I agree with the author that it is one that Christian preachers and lay workers must acknowledge if they are to carry out the work of the Holy Spirit today and tomorrow. However, the second half of the book, which dealt with how to do this, was for me very disappointing. I don't think that merely proclaiming, without putting in their historical context, those parts of the Bible that readers today find alien and offensive will in and of itself revive a mainstream Christianity in decline.
