Remember You Are Dust


Cascade 2012

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Taking biblical passages that most Christians are familiar with, Walter Brueggemann draws out new meaning around the theme of God’s grace to us as servants. He argues that we are most free when we are most enslaved to the Lord’s will, as the passions of the moment and the idols of cultures lose their grip on us. Brueggemann’s work is filled with passion for edifying the church, with insights both profound and practical.
