The Prophetic Imagination (2nd Edition)

Walter Brueggemann

$38.99

Paperback
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 emphasizes that the prophetic vision not only embraces the pain of the people but creates an energy 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 preface.

- Publisher 127 Pages

- Publisher Brueggemann describes the prophetic imagination as a force which brings religious traditions together with the contemporary realities of our society.
