Inscribing the Text: Sermons and Prayers of Walter Brueggemann
Following his highly successful collection of prayers, "Awed to Heaven, Rooted in Earth (2003) this ia a thoughtful collection of Brueggemann's most recent sermons and prayers. Not only a leading biblical theologian, Brueggemann has long established himself as one of the country's leading preachers. His earlier collection of sermons, "The Threat of Life: Sermons on Pain, Power, and Weakness (1996) has been a source of much homiletic inspiration, as has his reflections in "Finally Comes the Poet: Daring Speech for Proclamation (1989). The collection begins with a poignant chapter on the preacher as scribe, followed by twenty-two sermons and twenty-four prayers.
