Product Description

In a society rife with conflicting narratives and deafening in the clamor of culture wars, the church is in need of wise guides that are biblically rooted, prophetically clear, and pastorally compassionate. Walter Brueggemann has been once such guide for decades, issuing a clarion call for the church to practice a prophetic imagination.

In God, Neighbor, Empire, a collection of essays initially presented as lectures at Fuller Seminary, Brueggemann calls readers into prophetic listening by demonstrating the continual dialogue between man and God expressed within the pages of Scripture. He not only illuminates the paradoxical nature of the story of God and Israel in the Old Testament, but also reveals how the arc of this story reaches ever forward, and its trajectory confers meaning upon human relationships and communities in the present. The Old Testament still speaks.

Amid the noise luring us to pursue our own interests or to isolate or marginalize our neighbors, Brueggemann demonstrates repeatedly the call to renew a careful listening to God and neighbor that we might be equipped to live in the world with faithful obedience.

Editorial Reviews

"Always provocative and insightful, Walter Brueggemann brilliantly helps us see how the ancient text has stunning implications for how we think and live today. His deep love of God, Scripture, and humanity reverberates throughout this incisive exploration of God’s excessive faithfulness."

Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College

"In a society that commoditizes nearly all aspects of life, Walter Brueggemann presses Scripture’s summons to a neighborliness attuned to the well-being of the human community and the ecology of creation. God, Neighbor, Empire sets its compass to truths from ancient Israel, but it is a map for finding our way in a contemporary world where ‘liberty and justice for all’ is often hard to find."

Samuel E. Balentine, Director of Graduate Studies and Professor of Old Testament, Union Presbyterian Seminary
