Journey to the Common GoodJohn Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
This recent book by the world-renowned theologian Walter Brueggemann deals exclusively with the Old Testament and compares the events described in ancient scripture with today’s crises and challenges. He examines closely the books of Genesis, Exodus, Jeremiah and particularly Isaiah, and sees parallels with our contemporary capitalist economies with their concomitant exploitation, fear and suffering, where people are mere commodities. He exhorts the reader to beware of the failed systems of the past and urges an outgoing solidarity and fearless love of one’s neighbour and of the common good - as commanded by God. This book is full of imaginative and original ideas and, although the specialised language is sometimes daunting, it is well worth concentrated study and reflection.
