In this updated edition of the popular textbook, Walter Brueggemann and Linafelt invite readers to engage in the construction of meaning in the timeless texts of the Old Testament. The authors demonstrate the development of theological concepts from the Torah through post-exilic Judaism.
The Second Edition includes a substantial new chapter on the literary qualities of the biblical books. It also features textboxes in the form of "close readings" and "midrashic moments"; updates to reflect the latest scholarship; an expanded bibliography; and a new subject index.
