Deep Memory, Exuberant Hope: Contested Truth in a Post-Christian World

Full Product Description

The leading Old Testament theologian reflects on the meaning of the gospel in today's world.

These studies on a variety of biblical texts focus deftly on reading, listening to, and proclaiming the gospel in a broken, fragmented, and "post-Christendom" world. Brueggemann explores how these traditions have the potential to continually resonate in our contemporary communities and individual lives.

At its national meeting in November 2000, the Association of Theological Booksellers named Walter Brueggemann's Deep Memory, Exuberant Hope: Contested Truth in a Post-Christian World the Best General Interest Book of the Year. The Theologos Award was presented to the author and to Fortress Press, the publisher, at a dinner held in Brueggemann's honor.
