Walter Bruegggemann is argubly one of the planet's most knowledgeable Old Testament scholars and spirit-immersed teachers. I find his writing invariably thought-provoking but exceedingly dense, with a vocabulary and grammar that are daunting. I partake in small bites. This this little book is his attempt to write for the wider audience and "Make Sense of the Bible". His common thread is God's passion for justice. The book has enjoyed wide and enduring readership as it has been published by Westminster as a Revised Edition with new introduction by WB. Regrettably, this current Franciscan Media reprint lacks his splendid introduction, which lowers my rating to 4-star.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
