Here he traces the broad sweep from Exodus to Kings to Jeremiah to Jesus. He highlights that the prophetic vision and not only embraces the pain of the people but creates an energy and amazement based on the new thing that God is doing. In this new edition, Brueggemann has completely revised the text, updated the notes, and added a new preface.Hide synopsis

Brueggemann provides a very concise "vision instruction manual" for the training of the prophetic imagination for the 21st century. I've never been so encouraged, empowered, and informed in the pursuit of engaging and transforming our culture with the truth, ethos and freedom of God's ways.
Penetrating insights from someone who has much experience and wisdom.
I use this text in my ethics classes. Students engage the book and work through it chapter by chapter. Brueggemann gives the overarching principles of justice allowing professors and students to "use their imaginations" to apply his concepts to their lived reality.
