Walter Brueggeman is an influential Protestant Old Testament scholar who has taught Old Testament at both Eden Theological Seminary and Columbia Theological Seminary. His book, Old Testament Theology: An Introduction (Abindgon Press, 2008)1, begins with exposition on the content of God's self-revelation in Exodus (specifically in chapters 3-4:17, 19-24:18, and 32-34). He then pulls together threads from throughout the Old Testament to emphasize what it has to say about God's sovereignty, the nature of Israel as the people of God, and God's promises to both Israel and the world. In the introduction, Brueggeman claims that his method of approaching the Old Testament will be to “offer a coherent, wholistic presentation of the faith claims of the canonical text in a way that satisfies the investigations of historical-critical scholarship and the confessional-interpretive needs of ongoing ecclesial communities.” For Brueggeman, the critical tradition is “indispensable for theological interpretation” of a text which is marked by “unsettled, open-ended pluralism.”

Though Brueggeman claims to accept development and redaction in reaching the final form of the text, he still tends to treat the text as it exists in its final form, though by no means as a harmonious whole. His willingness to embrace discontinuity gives him the freedom to explore exegetical possibilities that a conservative commentator simply wouldn't entertain. For instance, Brueggeman concludes that the text is teaching that “YHWH is unforgiving,” “Moses loves Israel more than does YHWH,” and that God “exhibits no interest in Job's suffering. These are all matters of complete divine indifference.

Brueggemann is a great writer but his books are not easy reading. This book is amazing but you need to be prepared, it is long and in depth. Those who take the time to read it will be blessed in amazing ways...

Summed up in two word: Walter Brueggemann! Brueggemann's work is so compelling I quit underlining profound points because I was underlining everything!
