Reverberations of Faith: A Theological Handbook of Old Testament Themes

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, 2002 - Religion - 256 pages
3 Reviews

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 Faithwill be a great resource for both students and laity.
