Product description

Review

With typical panache Brueggemann goes a long way in helping us to reconcile the violence against Gods enemies in the Old Testament with the love of the marginalised in the New. In the present climate of violence, Divine Presence amid Violence is a must-read. --Ian Stackhouse, Team Leader at Guildford Baptist Church, England

In Divine Presence Amid Violence, Walter Brueggemanns reflection on the book of Joshua as the text of an oppressed people, experiencing the revelation of God through his demonstration of power enacted against the oppressor, offers acute insights to all who are exercised by the question how the violence commanded in the book of Joshua can count as revelation of the God worshipped by Christians. --Gordon McConville, Professor of Old Testament, University of Gloucestershire, England

Like Jacob wrestling with the man all night, Walter Brueggemann struggles with texts of divine violence and wrings from them a blessing. The book is a brilliant primer in persuasive, open-ended theological interpretation. It will help pastors, students, and anyone who would like to join the hot debate about violence and the God of the Bible. --Kathleen M. O'Connor, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary
