summary

"This volume contains the most recent collection of Walter Brueggemann's sermons and prayers. That would be notable in itself: another dazzling set of words from a man whose sheer energy and creativity make us wonder if he is climbing Sinai every morning, for dictation.

"Students and readers of Brueggemann will hear cadences of familiar themes: in the scribe, we hear poet and prophet, testimony and resistance, truth and power, exile and captivity....

"The sermons and prayers of this particular scribe...will linger to re-text and re-ignite another generation of preachers." — from the Foreword by Anna Carter Florence.
