The Emancipation of God

Postmarks on Cultural Prophecy
Product Description

Understanding the gospel as emancipation has been central to Walter Brueggemann's biblical interpretation. This book illustrates the theme's centrality, addressing the emancipation of God from our attempts to control, the emancipation of the church to be the people of an emancipated God, and the emancipation of the gospel to be a cultural prophecy.


This volume divides into three parts: ""The Emancipation of God,"" ""The Emancipation of the Church,"" and ""The Emancipation of the Neighborhood."" What the three parts hold in common is the kingdom of God. In each chapter, Brueggemann grinds away at biblical texts that have been muffled, silenced, and disabled to free the text from its cultural entrapments so that that the liberated text can speak for an emancipated God and a liberated church to free the world.
