I know that many of you who read my posts prefer when I write my own stuff, but i share the article below because Walter Bruggemann is one of the most influential, brilliant AND very faithful Bible scholars on the planet. He has influenced a whole generation of preachers and teachers… including this one. You may be challenged by what he says; you may feel you must disagree. But, like the old EF Hutton commercials, when Bruggemann speaks – people listen. You cannot dismiss his thought or his faith. You have to allow it to speak to you.
