Product Description

We can be hushed into silence before God's breathtaking holiness, or we can be coerced into silence by outside forces oppressing us. Time and again, Brueggemann sees marginalized people in the Bible speaking up prophetically during seasons of injustice. How long, O Lord? We have waited so expectantly. Now it is time to act.

Publisher's Description

Silence is a complex matter. It can refer to awe before unutterable holiness, but it can also refer to the coercion where some voices are silenced in the interest of control by the dominant voices. It is the latter silence that Walter Brueggemann explores, urging us to speak up in situations of injustice.



Interrupting Silence illustrates that the Bible is filled with stories where marginalized people break repressive silence and speak against it. Examining how maintaining silence allows the powerful to keep control, Brueggemann motivates readers to consider situations in their lives where they need to either interrupt silence or be part of the problem, convincing us that God is active and wanting us to act for justice.
