Reviews - What do customers think about Threat of Life: Sermons on Pain, Power, and Weakness?
Brueggemann is as fine as they come ... Aug 24, 1998
Anyone who reads this review is probably saying, "FOUR STARS ?? .... Why only FOUR stars??" Well, this material is excellent, but is not CLASSIC material (unlike "Cadences of Home" or "A Social Reading of the Old Testament").
Brueggemann as a scholar deserves FIVE STARS, unquestionably ... but this book, compared to his others, is "merely" excellence in motion ...
This is a collection of SERMONS Brueggemann has preached (and true to the Brueggemannian way, there is a short note telling the reader of the OCCASION and social setting of each sermon).
These sermons could easily be read for a Sunday School class series, or a spriritual formation exercise curriculum (yeah, they're THAT good).
