"These buried nuggets of interpretive wisdom from earlier years, by a scholar whose intellectual career could only be described as unique, display the arresting combination of exegetical insight, hermeneutical energy, and ethical intensity long welcomed by students, pastors, and teachers alike."
--Robert B. Coote, Old Testament Emeritus, San Francisco Theological Seminary
"Brueggemann's production consistently vouches for its expansiveness and depth. Few are modern scholars with his ability to address both scholars and laypeople. This socially oriented book once more demonstrates the broadness of his horizon and the clarity of his visionary understanding. The reader responds with delight and inspiration. Wipf and Stock is to be congratulated for offering us this insightful contribution by a much-loved exegete and thinker."
--Andre LaCocque, Emeritus Professor of Hebrew Scriptures, Chicago Theological Seminary; author of the trilogy on the early Yahwist (Cascade Books)
"One of today's most prolific and wide-ranging critics of the Hebrew Bible, Walter Brueggemann assembles here eight studies of diverse biblical texts and traditions. They all reflect his consistent interest in sociological analysis, and they share in common a focus on the poignant need for justice in the face of power imbalances and social, economic, and political oppression. A powerful and compelling resource for biblical studies."
--Douglas A. Knight, Drucilla Moore Buffington Professor of Hebrew Bible, Emeritus, Vanderbilt University
