'Wise words ... filled with a message of hope for humanity and the world' - Irish Catholic
Walter Brueggemann is beloved and respected by scholars, preachers and laity alike for his penetrating insights on Scripture and prophetic diagnoses of our culture. Both are woven throughout this new collection of his writings, A GOSPEL OF HOPE, which encourages readers to abandon what is safe and routine and instead embrace the audacity required to live out one's faith.
This must-have volume gathers Brueggemann's wisdom on topics ranging from anxiety and abundance to partisanship and the role of faith in public life.
Walter Brueggemann is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary. Widely considered one of the most influential Bible interpreters of our time, he is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, and the author of dozens of books, including Sabbath as Resistance: Saying No to the Culture of Now, The Prophetic Imagination and The Message of the Psalms.
