ISBN: 9781606740910
Walter Brueggemann, arguably America’s leading Old Testament scholar and theologian, takes us on a wild ride through the poetic prophecy of the Hebrew Scripture, identifying cultural contexts, putting a framework to Israel’s history, and, most significantly—and at times challengingly!—drawing connections between Israel’s sociological, economic and spiritual status and that of America today.
Session 1: Moses, Pharaoh, the Prophets and Us
Session 2: The Prophets as Uncredentialed Purveyors of Covenant
Session 3: Moral Coherence in a World of Power, Money and Violence
Session 4: The Shrill Rhetoric that Breaks Denial
Session 5: The Grief of Loss as Divine Judgment
Session 6: The Promissory Language that Breaks Despair

This DVD contains all video content needed to conduct this six-session study. Each session begins with a 10-15 minute video presentation by Brueggemann followed by filmed interaction with a diverse small group.

Also required is the separately available Embracing the Prophets in Contemporary Culture Participant’s Workbook (978-60674-092-7). Each participant will need one copy.
