Embracing the Prophets in Contemporary Culture: Walter Brueggemann on Confronting Today's Pharaohs

Walter Brueggemann, arguably America’s leading Old Testament scholar and theologian, takes us on a wild ride through the poetic prophecy of the Hebrew Scripture, identifying cultural contexts, putting a framework to Israel’s history, and, most significantly—and times challengingly!—drawing connections between Israel’s sociological, economic and spiritual status and that of America today. What was the message of these remarkable poet-prophets in their own time and place? What is their message for us today? Who are today’s prophetic voices? How has the contemporary church been coopted by culture? What steps can we take to reclaim the prophetic message of distributive justice, nonviolence, loss and hope? And what is your role in bringing God’s perspective to today’s society?


ABOUT THE SERIES Embracing . . .

Each of the "Embracing" units begins with a five DVD session video, a 10-15 minute presentation, by the personality and Tim Scorer followed by filmed interaction with a diverse small group of adults. The Participant’s Workbook then helps your own local small group “join the conversation.” The participant's book includes all study materials need by participants and those who lead. Each participant will need one copy. The Embracing Series is ideal for adult and young-adult small groups, Christian educators, clergy, chaplains and campus ministries.
