A review of Brueggemann on the Old Testament. (H/T John Hobbins)
I particularly liked this sentence: "He seeks to demonstrate that close attention to Israel’s testimony ultimately serves the pastoral end of conversion: namely, conversion from the illusion of the self-sufficient human agent to a life lived fully in partnership with YHWH." That's something I've been thinking about a lot recently.
