The prophetic imagination by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
23 editions published between 1978 and 2001 in English and held by 1,230 libraries worldwide
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. Here he traces the broad sweep from Exodus to Kings to Jeremiah to Jesus. He highlights that the prophetic vision and not only embraces the pain of the people but creates an energy and amazement based on the new thing that God is doing. In this new edition, Brueggemann has completely revised the text, updated the notes, and added a new

"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. Covering each book of the Old Testament - in the order in which it appears in the Hebrew Bible - the Introduction explains without unnecessary jargon the most important issues and methods in contemporary interpretation of the Old Testament - literary, historical, and theological."--Jacket

Isaiah by Walter Brueggemann( file )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,013 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

David's truth in Israel's imagination & memory by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
19 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 806 libraries worldwide
"In this completely revised edition of a true classic, Walter Brueggemann examines four different sets of David texts, both narrative and poetic. Each text reflects a particular social context, a particular social vision, and a particular community. Thus these stories and poems offer distinctly different "modes of truth" concerning this pivotal biblical figure. The tribe, the family, the state, and the assembly each brought a different agenda to their portrayals of David. Each fashioned different portraits of the one who helped define them and was defined by them."--Jacket

Cadences of home preaching among exiles by Walter Brueggemann( file )
5 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 688 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

The theology of the book of Jeremiah by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 624 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

Old Testament theology : essays on structure, theme, and text by Walter Brueggemann( Book )
5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 478 libraries worldwide
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. - Publisher
