Comments The Practice of Prophetic Imagination: Preaching an Emancipating Word

  1. Fewer things are tiresome than prophetic preaching as it is commonly practiced It usually involves a self proclaimed prophet haranguing the congregation about what needs to be done or undone about a particular social ill chosen by the preacher The result is an ideologically driven sermon that rarely moves listeners into new understanding or faithful practice More often than not they are left guilty Brueggeman teaches a authentic biblically grounded from of prophetic preaching that involves no [...]


  2. Excellent Brueggemann brings to pastoral practice especially the pastor as interpreter and preacher a depth of biblical reflection that I long for in most other pastoral giuld books PPI is refreshing.Refreshing, but fiercely challenging Following the model of the OT Prophets, pastors are to speak truth in the midst of denial truth about destruction in their case and ours We are to grieve as God grieves, waiting in a space of loss And then, in a leap of imagination, we are to narrate hope beyond [...]


  3. This is certainly an in depth look at the calling of prophetic preaching, but I wouldn t say it s particularly accessible to non scholars Brueggemann looks at prophetic preaching based on the examples of the biblical prophets themselves and holds them up as a model for modern prophetic preachers The balance of ancient and modern is held in tension throughout, and the common task is noted that the prophet helps move society out of what was and into what is, while re enforcing both the presence an [...]


  4. he bottom line A bright light of inspiration and hope to prophets and preachers in a world consumed by the ideology of empire.In short, this book effectively and intelligently answers a question of critical importance in the contemporary world How can prophets liberate believers from the enticing, powerful and dominant narrative that draws them far from God That is, what does it actually mean to preach a prophetic word in the 21st century and fully subscribe to the idea that God is an active and [...]


  5. Loved going through this book It is very enlightening, forcing one to look at the dominate narrative and deconstructing it in light of the Biblical narrative that is dominated by YHWH The book s focus, however, is not merely discerning the differences between these two narratives but taking the next step by undermining the dominate narrative by speaking YHWH s narrative into it, just as the Old Testament prophets did during their time.


  6. Excellent Brueggemann makes some remarkable connections between the rebuilding of Israel after the Babylonian captivity and post 911 America Both struggles involve developing a theology that accept vulnerability and rethinking of purpose over attempts to bluster a cloud of denial that makes one feel invincible.


  7. Brueggemann offers us an invitation to take up the prophetic mantle, but also recognizes the difficulty of doing so The prophetic word is not about prediction or scolding people into social action Rather it is confronting the Dominant narrative with that of the Narrative of Yahweh.
