Using God's Resources Wisely by Walter Brueggemann

Book Description

New and different readings of biblical texts are one consequence of a growing awareness of the environmental crisis and how it relates to social relations, especially in urban settings. Walter Brueggemann explores readings from Isaiah and how they relate to the environment and urban crisis. He approaches the readings as an artistic-theological history of the city of Jerusalem--a case study of urban environmental crisis that resulted from a lost sense of covenantal neighborliness. Reflecting on Jerusalem, its failure, demise, and prospect, Brueggemann uncovers some alarming parallels in today's urban cities, and offers a demanding but hopeful challenge to faith.

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.
