Endlessly cunning, elusive, and playful--the Bible consistently
unsettles even as it assures. Walter Brueggemann reveals exactly
how Scripture exposes the inadequacy of the assumptions and habits
that shape our lives. He finds inside Israel's ancient poetry,
prophecy, narrative, and legal covenants new words that create new
peoples. In so doing this book provokes a theology of
transformation--one that compels new social, economic, and
political practices. Brueggemann's reading reveals that we are not
fated to live a life of greed, anxiety, and violence, but instead
can embrace a shared life of well-being grounded in an investment
in the common good. Brueggemann shows the endless ways by which the
Bible provokes new life for transformed peoples.
