TEXTS THAT LINGER,
WORDS THAT EXPLODE


A review of Walter Brueggemann's latest book published by Fortress Press, a book that has been described as ".an invitation to the reader to return to the texts and let their words explode once more."

Princeton Theological Seminary professor D. Miller writes: "I am often struck by how readily people listen to Brueggemann and read his books. This contemporary prophet does not mince words or preach comfortable sermons. There is an abrasiveness that comes from an authentic hearing of teh word. Maybe the response of his listeners is itself a testimony, not to the popularity of a writer/speaker but to the power of the Scriptures he interprets and their comelling call, even when they place us under the threat of judgment."
