Although Walter Brueggemann is best known as an Old Testament scholar, his newest book may surprise some readers with its emphasis on Jesus. The author’s comments on biblical texts, while always faithful to the original, are also faithful to the truth they shine on our current life. His insights are original and thoughtful.
