Overview

Walter Brueggemann puts forth a “fresh hearing of the gospel” communicated in Old Testament tradition. Brueggemann focuses on how we neglect how the Bible affirms human culture, capability, and responsibility as a part of the biblical narrative and gospel story. He zooms in on the book of Proverbs and the wisdom traditions it contains that affirm the world and celebrate culture.

About Walter Brueggemann

Walter Brueggemann through his teaching, lecturing, and writing, has effectively demonstrated the significance of the Old Testament for our fractured world today. Recognized as the preeminent interpreter of the ancient Hebrew texts in relation to questions posed by a variety of academic disciplines, he has shown the way toward a compelling understanding of the major components of the faith and life of ancient Israel, especially its Psalms, its prophets, and its historical narratives.

Brueggemann is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament Emeritus at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. He is past president of the Society of Biblical Literature and the author of numerous books, including David’s Truth: In Israel’s Imagination and Memory, Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching Genesis, and The Message of the Psalms: A Theological Commentary.
