Publisher's Summary

Silence is a complex matter. It can refer to awe before unutterable holiness, but it can also refer to the coercion where some voices are silenced in the interest of control by the dominant voices. It is the latter silence that Walter Brueggemann explores, urging us to speak up in situations of injustice.   

Interrupting Silence illustrates that the Bible is filled with stories where marginalized people break repressive silence and speak against it. Examining how maintaining silence allows the powerful to keep control, Brueggemann motivates listeners to consider situations in their lives where they need to either interrupt silence or be part of the problem, convincing us that God is active and wanting us to act for justice.

Excellent challenge to our thinking

Brueggeman has challenged us to listen to the voices breaking the silence from scripture and our own time. He helps us think thru each passage presented and look at implications.

Thoughtful and thought provoking

I wish Walter Bruggeman had read his own book, he's very compelling. Great content nonetheless.
