This is the first book in a long time that I've tabbed the pages of with labelled post-its. It's a book I expect to return to again and again in years to come. Journeying through the scriptures by tracing the steps of the prophets a strong theme develops, that it's the prophet's task to startle and excite those who are numb and depressed into believing that newness is possible, imminent, even tangible. 'The Prophetic Imagination' contains more delicious quotes than I could ever mention. So why only 4 stars and not 5? The one drawback is that for all but the most academic of readers the language is very dense and at times even verging on inaccessible. Definitely worth having a crack at it anyway though.

This book is another of those "coming home" moments which seem to occur with alarming regularity as a long life gathers to its close. It needs to be read and re read in order to first grasp the prophetic message and then to slowly allow that message to shape one's preaching, ministry and the fellowship of which you are a part (a fragment of that Body which is the local Church). On holiday in Liverpool, wandering the City and talking to needy people, helps to ground the teaching. For this experience
: Thank you Walter Brueggemann, Brother in the Lord Jesus Christ.

This item arrived safely and in good condition, with a bookmark. Greatly appreciated.

N.B. In spite of present news items, all my items have been delivered on time, with nothing outstanding at the moment. Thank you. A very happy and holy Christmas to all there.
