Toby Sumpter: On Walter Brueggemann’s New Book, The Prophetic Imagination

March 11, 2010

The troubling thing however is that in all of the places where the Scriptures clearly designate Solomon’s failures and Pharaoh-like imperialism, Brueggemann doesn’t seem to notice. And if that were not annoying enough, in place of that omission, he takes it upon himself to insist upon great sins that the text is either silent on or in some cases flatly contradicts. But Breuggemann has already decided the outcome. Two and two make three, and that’s all there is to it. Don’t bother him with the text (he’s a scholar you know).

Good Review and a must read…
