About the Author
Walter Brueggemann is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary. An ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, he is regarded as the premier Old Testament interpreter and biblical theologian of today. Among his many publications are Prophetic Imagination and Old Testament Theology.
For decades Walter Brueggemann has shown us how biblical texts speak potently to our individual and communal lives, our responsibilities to one another, and our care for the world around us. Real World Faith continues this urgent and prophetic work. Brueggemann demonstrates how faith in God transforms how we understand our physical and our social-political bodies and requires of us courageous and timely theological interpretation that is never settled, never static. Brueggemann urges us to "insist otherwise" that the Holy One matters--and matters decisively--in the world today. --Christine Roy Yoder, Columbia Theological Seminary
Real World Faith is another gift Walter Brueggemann offers to the church, a gift forged in his own faithful attention to his calling, and a gift we eagerly unwrap in anticipation of being surprised and encouraged by Good News. --Erskine Clarke, author of Dwelling Place and By the Rivers of Water
