Item description for Israel's Praise by Walter Brueggemann...
Overview "Praise is the duty and delight, the ultimate vocation of the human community; indeed of all creation. Yes, all life is aimed toward God and finally exists for the sake of God. Praise articulates and embodies our capacity to yield, submit, and abandon ourselves in trust and gratitude to the One whose we are. Praise is not only a human requirement and a human need, it is also a human delight. We have a resilient hunger to move beyond self, to return our energy and worth to the One from whom it has been granted. In our return to that One, we find our deepest joy. That is what it means to 'glorify God and enjoy God forever.'" At the time of this publication, Walter Brueggemann was McPheeder Professor of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia.
