The Practice of Prophetic Imagination

Preaching An Emancipating Word

Book - 2012
Rate this:
Walter Brueggemann declares that the necessary character of truly prophetic preaching today is 'a contestation between narratives.' If the dominant narrative of our time promotes national self-sufficiency (through militarism) and personal self-sufficiency (through consumerism), it must be opposed by a different narrative. Prophetic preaching takes its stand in a world claimed by a God who is gracious, uncompromising--and real. Brueggemann writes here for leaders in faith communities who bear the responsibility of preaching. He describes the discipline of a prophetic imagination, in an unflinchingly realistic, unwaveringly candid manner.
