Overview
These exciting studies on the first five books of the Bible cover a wide range of topics, challenging the reader to confront the issues of faithfulness, responsiblity, and justice in an ever-changing world.

His creative use of metaphor and imagination invites the reader to encounter afresh in these biblical texts God's call and the work of justice.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Covenanted Self?

This COULD be good as one's intro to Brueggemann  Aug 22, 2000
Although the first section moves just a little slow for the lay reader (he speaks of pyschological backgrounds in family relationships), the rest of the book is typical profundity as one would expect from Brueggemann.

In fact, this book is probbaly the most quotable Brueggemann to date (I've read about a dozen of his books).

Among the discussions: *The "dialectic" between PRAISE and COMPLAINT in the Christian life; *The concept of "othering" as the risky, demanding, dynamic process of relating to one who is not us; *Approaching God as EROS
