Item Description...
This manuscript was prepared and presented as the 1989 Lyman Beecher Lectures at Yale Divinity School. The Beecher Lectures are by definition addressed to the subject of preaching. In these lectures, the author has sought to address the crisis of interpretation the preacher faces in our culture, which has either dismissed or controlled the text. Preaching as an act of interpretation is in our time, demanding, daring, and dangerous.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Dynamic of Preaching as Poetry  Apr 28, 2006
I will not attempt to repeat what other reviewers have said, only to add that Walter Brueggemann was my Old Testament professor,mentor, and friend at Eden Theological Seminary, where he was either the first or most imaginative scholar to see the dynamics of poetry for motivational preaching and as a catalyst for change. Because of this, "Finally Comes the Poet" is my primary text in the course "Preaching as Storytelling" at Florida Christian University/Theological Seminary. We live in such a drab, prosaic society that we have lost the rich symbolism and imagination of poetry or at least played it down in our society, witness the lack of emphasis upon "right brain" electives in our schools and the stress on science, mathematics, and other "left brain" functions. The richness of language in poetry breathes fresh air into our Biblical insights and into our sermonic/psychological grasp of reality.
Fresh words urgently needed today  Nov 13, 2002
It is impossible to overstate how important this book is for us who yearn for the Gospel to be once again spoken with ardor and relevancy to our 'fearfully complacent' congregations/nation. This is the eighth of Professor Brueggemann's books I have read, and he is a critically needed prophetic voice in our very own wilderness.
O. T. Prophet-- N.T. Poet--Totally Poetic Preacher--Revised  Jun 17, 2001
"Finally Comes the Poet" is surely one descriptive title of my most read of Bruegge's theological mines. For those who need to read theological mines, it takes away despair as few poets do!

Sir Walter stirs up one's creative juices simply in describing, the "generative power of biblical texts to summon and evoke new life." He considers "preaching to be a poetic construal of an alternative world... whose purpose is to cherish and open the truth." This theme appears in nearly every class of Brueggemann!

My review is unnecessary after comments of Fred Craddock from the book jacket. "Here we have what we have come to expect from Walter Brueggemann; a fired imagination, harnessed & disciplined-offering what the gospel offers, that is an alternative world."

Brueggemann names powerful titles of healing from Biblical texts in his chapter: "Numbness & Ache or The Strangeness of Healing: 1) We likely cannot work alone for own healing. It may require a priest. 2) Healing requires the submission of some thing of value. 3) Healing is the enactment of atonement. 4) The act of putting away the poison of guilt is done not by ourselves but on our behalf by the priest.

I place this up to, "Awed to Heaven, Rooted in Earth; The Psalms of Life and Faith; Spirituality of the Psalms; Introduction to the Old Testament, Struggling with Scriptures, and Commentary On Jeremiah!" It is difficult to place a listing at one perspective of necessity, life-style or precious moments of grief, joy, or pain or peace...Today this is my current list!

My continuing prayer for all who read his poetic thots, "May we be challenged by Sir Walter, one neat OT prophet-poet-preacher." Although his words were created for Yale Lyman Beecher Lectures of 1989, they are proof he is totally at home in both Old & New Testament! Amazing to be sandwiched into those elite lectures after Dr. Craddock in 1978, John Claypool, 1979 and earlier than Barbara Brown Taylor in 1997!

Hooray for Creative Poets who preach the scriptures! Retired Chaplain, Fred W. Hood
