Theology of the Book of Jeremiah by Walter Brueggemann

Book Description

The present study focuses on the theology of the Book of Jeremiah. That theology revolves around themes familiar from Israel's covenantal faith, especially the sovereignty of YHWH expressed in judgment and promise. The outcome of this theological nexus of context, person, and tradition is a book that moves into the abyss and out of the abyss in unexpected ways. It does so, in part, by asserting that God continues to be generatively and disturbingly operative in the affairs of the world, up to and including our contemporary abysses (such as 9/11). The God attested in the Book of Jeremiah invites its readers into and through any and all such dislocations to new futures that combine divine agency and human inventiveness rooted in faithfulness.

Books By Author Walter Brueggemann

Bible Makes Sense by Walter Brueggemann Bible Makes Sense, Paperback (July 2016)

A unique how-to book about the Bible proposing that Christians should approach the Bible not as a collection of ancient documents, but as our partner in an ongoing dialogue about our life here and now.

Other Kingdom by Walter Brueggemann Other Kingdom, Paperback (February 2016)

Our seduction into beliefs in competition, scarcity, and acquisition are producing too many casualties. We need to depart a kingdom that creates isolation, polarized debate, an exhausted planet, and violence that comes with the will to empire. The abbreviation of this empire is called a consumer culture.
