Product Excerpts and Related Resources


“In Truth and Hope, Walter Brueggemann unearths and relates messages from Scripture that speak to today's culture and society.  Although well known for his Old Testament scholarship, Brueggemann is the quintessential pastor-scholar-theologian, breaking through the academia-church divide, providing suggestions and lessons that both academics and laymen will find beneficial.” – Bold Theology


“‘There can be no hope until truth is told,’ Brueggemann states early in this volume. He then tells us the truth about Daniel and difference, the Psalms and pastoral care, Proverbs and higher education, holy truth versus certitude, Ezra-Nehemiah and prayer and justice—to name only a few of his numerous topics and texts—all the while injecting real and profound hope in us, the church, and the world amidst many anxieties, uncertainties, failures, and sins. When he writes ‘I am aware, of course, that a little Bible study changes nothing,’ we have this latest installment of his oeuvre to prove otherwise. As Brueggemann demonstrates throughout this stunning volume, ‘the beginning point of public policy is text, text, text.’ Let anyone with ears to hear listen!”

—Brent A. Strawn, Professor of Old Testament, Duke University
