This book shares the results of a symposium held to honor the work of Walter Brueggemann and Charles Cousar at Columbia Theological Seminary on the occasion of their retirement. Each author and each chapter of the book simultaneously engages the Bible, the church and the world--a three-part engagement that was fundamental to the acclaimed careers of Brueggemann and Cousar. The contributors, who hold similar academic distinction for cutting-edge biblical studies, are able to emulate and even expand upon the honorees' groundbreaking bodies of work. The book also includes responses by Brueggemann and Cousar to the challenges of traditional biblical interpretation represented here.
