Living Countertestimony

This volume invites readers to get up close and personal with one of the most respected and beloved writers of the last four decades. Carolyn J. Sharp has transcribed numerous table conversations between Walter Brueggemann and his colleagues and former students, in addition to several of his addresses and sermons from both academic and congregational settings. The result is the essential Brueggemann: readers will learn about his views on scholarship, faith, and the church; get insights into his "contagious charisma," grace, and charity; and appreciate the candid reflections on the fears, uncertainties, and difficulties he faced over the course of his career. Anyone interested in Brueggemann's work and thoughts will be gifted with thought-provoking, inspirational reading from within these pages.

O'Connor, Emerita, Columbia Theological Seminary "This living testimony, or countertestimony, is a stirring witness to the author whose words have shaped our faith and imagination for more than four decades." --Louis Stulman, University of Findlay "Anyone who does not believe that understanding something of the person deepens one's appreciation for his published work will have a change of mind after reading this worthwhile project." --Daniel L.
