"Few people have inspired me more than Brueggemann, especially as we try to understand what it means to be God's peculiar people in the belly of the empire. This series is sort of like the ʽbest hits' album of one of the world's greatest theologians." --Shane Claiborne, author, activist, and cofounder of Red Letter Christians

"You will need this on your shelf, coming to it again and again to deliver yourself from stale theologies and to liberate God--and hope--for a generation desperately needing to know the true heart of the One who frees us to flourish in community." --Jacqui Lewis, author, activist, preacher, and Senior Minister for Public Theology and Transformation, Middle Church, New York

"Reading Deliver Us, especially in these dark times, is an exhilarating experience. The exodus story boldly speaks to our troubles. Brilliance and an abiding commitment to a more merciful and just social order jump from the page." --Eddie S. Glaude Jr., James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor, Princeton University
