Take and Read

This volume collects prayers with which, over 42 years, famed Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann began his classes and led worship. The prayers are rich in imagery, grounded in scripture and passionate in faith.

This is a powerful reflection on the response of churches to 9/11 and to the war on terror. Bass explores the difference between being a chapel of the state and a church of the world in these challenging times.

What a gift to the church the volumes in this Contemporary Literature and the Life of Faith series are! Each selection from noted contemporary writers has a fine introduction and is followed by questions for reflection and discussion. Great for adult-study groups.
