I hesitate to give this five stars because I am probably much more a conservative "evangelical" than Brueggemann, but it was a great read, very interesting, somewhat profound and thought provoking, and had some great practical applications. It made me want to read more Brueggemann, which I did. So far I greatly value his work but am still on the fence trying to figure out the implications of some of his conclusions and even his presuppositions that get him there.
