Overview

In these essays, Walter Brueggemann addresses the necessity for thinking about the shape and structure of Old Testament theology-and for the impact such thinking can have on the larger issues of contemporary life.

Brueggemann draws on the work of persons from all disciplines and incorporates them in a seminal way in his theology. The work of persons in theology, psychology, the social sciences, politics, and the like often provides heuristic possibilities and even basic models for talking about the Old Testament. The Old Testament is seen to be something that has intelligible and significant worldly connections.

Editorial Reviews

Jerry A. Gladson
We cannot but hope the present volume indeed constitutes a prolegomena to Brueggemann's full-scale theology of the OT. If these essays are any indication, the scholarly world is in for a real feast....These texts make claims that are of great urgency in our common life." That sense of urgency permeates this excellent monograph. I anxiously await Brueggemann's full-blown theology of the OT.
