Overview

Deep Memory Exuberant Hope

The leading Old Testament theologian reflects on the meaning of the gospel in today's world.

These studies on a variety of biblical texts focus deftly on reading, listening to, and proclaiming the gospel in a broken, fragmented, and "post-Christendom" world. Brueggemann explores how these traditions have the potential to continually resonate in our contemporary communities and individual lives.
