In this challenging and enlightening treatment, Brueggemann traces the lines from the radical vision of Moses to the solidification of royal power in Solomon to the prophetic critique of that power with a new vision of freedom in the prophets.

"In this book, Walter Brueggemann, America's premier biblical theologian, introduces the reader to the broad theological scope and chronological sweep of the Old Testament.

The land : place as gift, promise, and challenge in Biblical faith by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
22 editions published between 1977 and 2005 in English and Korean and held by 1,046 libraries worldwide
The land was one of the most vibrant symbols for the people of ancient Israel. In the land--gift, temptation and task--was found the physical source of Israel's fertility and life, and a place for the gathering of the hopes of the covenant people. In this careful treatment, the author follows the development of his theme through the major blocks of Israel's traditions. The book provides a point of entrance to the theology of the Old Testament and to aspects of the New Testament--even as it illuminates crucial issues of our day

The creative word : canon as a model for Biblical education by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
14 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in English and Korean and held by 584 libraries worldwide
Every faith community knows the challenges of inviting new members and the next generation into its shared life without falling into an arid traditionalism or a shallow relativism. Renowned scholar Walter Brueggemann finds a framework for education in the structure of the Hebrew Bible canon, with its assertion of center and limit (in the Torah), of challenge (in the Prophets), and of inquiry (in the Writings). Incorporating the best insights from his own career and from the fields of canonical criticism, Old Testament theology, and pedagogical theory, Brueggemann offers a vision of how the community can draw on the shape of Scripture to educate its members. First published in 1982, The Creative Word is now updated and introduced with a foreword by Amy Erickson of Iliff School of Theology

Isaiah by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 421 libraries worldwide
In this expository commentary, Walter Brueggemann considers the canonical shape of Isaiah and treats the book as a primary theological "script" of the people of God in the Old Testament. Here in volume 1, Brueggemann writes on Isaiah 1-39. He explores Isaiah's richness and density, identifying its theological claims and showing how they are evoked by and addressed to particular historical situations. Although the events in Isaiah refer to actual crises in the ancient world, Isaiah's theme of displacement and restoration remains relevant for Christians today. - Publisher
The theology of the book of Jeremiah by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 351 libraries worldwide
The present study focuses on the theology of the Book of Jeremiah. That theology revolves around themes familiar from Israel's covenantal faith, especially the sovereignty of YHWH expressed in judgment and promise. The outcome of this theological nexus of context, person, and tradition is a book that moves into the abyss and out of the abyss in unexpected ways. It does so, in part, by asserting that God continues to be generatively and disturbingly operative in the affairs of the world, up to and including our contemporary abysses (such as 9/11). The God attested in the Book of Jeremiah invites its readers into and through any and all such dislocations to new futures that combine divine agency and human inventiveness rooted in faithfulness. The book specifies metaphorical and poetic modes of discussing as essential to critical reflection
Cadences of home : preaching among exiles by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 286 libraries worldwide
"In his new book, Walter Brueggemann challenges prevailing ideas of preaching by encouraging ministers to catch up with today's profoundly changed social atmosphere. In doing so, preachers will see the urgent need for a new set of guidelines to deal with today's very different set of issues." "Cadences of Home is a visionary book that details Brueggemann's rethinking of the art of preaching. A dynamic change in the way we preach will allow us to help many of today's lost people find their spiritual home, he says. In fact, Brueggemann stresses, there is such a home for all people."--Jacket
A theological introduction to the Old Testament by Bruce C Birch( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and Korean and held by 248 libraries worldwide
This book has become a standard text in seminary and university classrooms. The purpose of this second edition is to help readers come to a critically informed understanding of the Old Testament as the church's scripture. This book introduces the Old Testament both as a witness of ancient Israel and as a witness to the church and synagogue through the generations of those who have passed these texts on as scripture. The authors of this volume share a commitment to the interpretation of the Old Testament as a central resource for the life of the church today. At the same time, they introduce the Old Testament witness in a manner that honors the importance of biblical scholarship in helping students engage the variety of theological voices within the Old Testament. This second edition gives special attention to deepening and broadening theological interpretations by including, for example, issues related to gender, race, and class. It also includes more detailed maps and charts for student use. - Publisher
