Who Is Walter Brueggemann?
Renowned Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann is one of modern America’s most prominent theologians. He challenges readers to consider the messages of the Old Testament as more relevant than the philosophies and ideas we struggle with today—postmodernism, agnosticism, consumerism. On this ground, few scholars have brought the Old Testament into contemporary relevance as cleanly as Brueggemann. His research is at the intersection of philosophy and sociology, where he explores the societies and communities of ancient Israel and how their religious beliefs and practices shaped the world around them.
If you don’t have Walter Brueggemann in your library, then it’s time to wipe the dust off your keyboard and dive into contemporary Old Testament scholarship! Some of his chief works in this collection include:
- The Prophetic Imagination
- The Threat of Life: Sermons on Pain, Power, and Weakness
- Deep Memory, Exuberant Hope: Contested Truth in a Post-Christian World
- Israel’s Praise: Doxology against Idolatry and Ideology
- David’s Truth: In Israel’s Imagination and Memory
- Texts under Negotiation: The Bible and Postmodern Imagination
- The Psalms and the Life of Faith
Prophecy, Poetry, and Psalms
One of the defining characteristics of Brueggemann’s exposition is his love for the prophetic nature of the Old Testament as found in unexpected and overlooked places, such as 1 & 2 Samuel, Psalms, and the Pentateuch. The prophetic hope—that one day a Savior might come and redeem Israel—permeates Scripture, and Brueggemann has left no Ebenezer unturned in his exegetical search for this Redeemer.
His research will lead you through the Psalms, where he sets new paths for exploring theology and evangelism. This collection contains no fewer than three of his works on the Psalms, and any one of them might surprise you—his passion for prayer, praise, and poetry shines through his exegesis, as though having the same purpose as the Psalms themselves. In fact, we included some books on Brueggemann’s prayers and his early thoughts on the poetry and artistry of preaching the Gospel.
