What insight and challenge can the ancient Hebrew text of the Old Testament offer the faith, life and practice of the contemporary church?


Dr. Brueggemann considers texts from the Exodus narrative, the Jeremiah oracle, and the Isaiah sequence of texts in the hope that they 'may summon and engage and reassure the church in its demanding missional stance, permitting the church to live faithfully amid hegemonic ideologies that suck the life out of our socioeconomic neighborhoods.' Lectures include:

  1. From Exodus to Sinai: The Journey to the Common Good
  2. n
  3. Boasting in Power or Boasting in God? Jeremiah's Either / Or of Public Faith
  4. n
  5. Receiving Salvation and Doing Justice: From Vision to Imperative in Isaiah
  6. n

    Responses are given by Phil Long and Paul Williams. John G. Stackhouse hosts.
