Format: Paperback, 176 pages, 2nd Revised edition Edition
Published In: United States, 01 June 2001
In this challenging and enlightening treatment, Brueggemann traces the lines from the radical vision of Moses to the solidification of royal power in Solomon to the prophetic critique of that power with a new vision of freedom in the prophets. Here he traces the broad sweep from Exodus to Kings to Jeremiah to Jesus. He highlights that the prophetic vision and not only embraces the pain of the people but creates an energy and amazement based on the new thing that God is doing. In this new edition, Brueggemann has completely revised the text, updated the notes, and added a new preface.

Matthew on
 
I just picked up this book again at the BCNZ library and although technical and complex, Bruggerman does a thorough job of challenging his readers to consider the role of the prophet in the royal empire and how they were criticizing the Empire that seeks to numb its kingdom and set them in routine. The prophet criticizes and then Energizes an alternative community to establish a new conscience for living in God's Kingdom. He does this looking at characters like Moses, Elijah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, etc. Hard read but good
