Product Description

If there were risks and consequences for the poet-prophet Isaiah, there are certainly also risks and consequences for the writer who today wishes to take the biblical literature seriously. No one - not even his strongest opponents - could accuse Walter Brueggemann of not being capable of a firm persuasion of anything. On the contrary, he has cared not for consequences but has written, boldly and with a passionate conviction that echoes William Blake as well as Isaiah. This book is a tribute to the great writer, Walter Brueggemann.

Publisher's Description

This volume engages the work of Walter Brueggemann, most of which has been published by Fortress Press. The volume centers on the character of God in the text of the Old Testament as a site of theological tension and even ambivalence. Biblical faith never experiences God as entirely above the fray but rather as entangled in history, astonishingly transformative, and impinged upon by the voices of the suffering. Brueggemann's monumental Theology of the Old Testament addresses this fact with great theological insight and rigor, and the internationally renowned biblical scholars writing here engage and extend his insights into the "unsettled Character . . . at the center of the text."
