In Mandate to Difference, renowned theologian Walter Brueggemann sets forth a new vision of the Christian church in today's world. Based on speaking engagements surrounding his critical passion and conviction that the church in this moment must set itself in tension with the rest of the world, these essays call the church to courageously defy political polarization, consumerism, and militarism.

Bringing texts of the Old Testament to the forefront in light of our current moment, Brueggemann is, as Publishers Weekly reviews, offering "some profound insights in this collection of essays, roughly tied together by themes of social justice in the Bible and in the contemporary church. The best moments are his specific exegetical observations about the politics, economics, religious practices, and community customs of various societies in the Hebrew Bible."

This biblically based collection of essays will inspire your congregation's next steps.
