Description

With his typical interpretive coherence, Walter Brueggemann explores more than one hundred Old Testament themes--from "ancestors" to "YHWH." Providing much more than dictionary-style entries, Brueggemann acknowledges the deep interconnectedness of these themes as he explores their depth, complexities, and interrelationships. By reading across the entries, readers will sense the dynamism of the faith of ancient Israel. Each entry states the consensus reading, identifies what is at issue in the interpretive question, and discusses the practical significance of the issue for the church today--in part by suggesting contemporary connections to the ancient texts. Reverberations of Faith will be a great resource for both students and laity.

Reviews

From Bibliotheca Sacra(Vol. 162, No. 648, October-December 2005)This book is "disconcerting to readers of a more conservative tradition.""[Brueggemann] has questions about the historicityof David...he denies any need for an actual Exodusevent...he waffles on the question of Jesus as theonly fulfillment of Old Testament messianic expectation...."
