Lent recalls times of wilderness and wandering, from newly freed Hebrew slaves in exile to Jesus' temptation in the desert. God has always called people out of their safe, walled cities into uncomfortable places, revealing paths they would never have chosen. Despite our culture of self-indulgence, we too are called to walk an alternative path-one of humility, justice, and peace. Walter Brueggemann's thought-provoking reflections for the season of Lent invite us to consider the challenging, beautiful life that comes with walking the way of grace.

Rebuilding the Foundations: Social Relationships in Ancient Scripture and Contemporary Culture

  • Author: John Brueggemann and Walter Brueggemann

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this unique volume, father-and-son team Walter and John Brueggemann take a close look at our fractured American society and suggest ways for improvement. Using six themes identified by some scholars as the moral foundations of society—care, fairness, liberty, loyalty, authority, and sanctity—they examine the unsustainable patterns of our contemporary society and reveal how those patterns played out in the ancient world of the Old Testament. Brueggemann and Brueggemann demonstrate how comparing the current state of these moral foundations with what God wanted them to be can help us better respond to the challenges of today. They assert that achieving any significant change will require the work of all of us and will be grounded in a vision of neighborliness. Rebuilding the Foundations will inspire readers to reorient toward a better way of living, both for themselves and for all living things.

Walter and John Brueggemann have written a startlingly insightful and important book addressing some of the most important issues facing the human race today. John draws from contemporary sociology, Walter from his unique and deeply insightful approach to the Hebrew Bible, and each presents a progressive and at points revolutionary worldview that will give readers a solid intellectual and spiritual foundation for seeking a fundamental transformation of our society. Every religious leader, spiritual or secular activist, and anyone hoping to build a saner and more ethically coherent society must read this book!
