Fretheim Lecture in Biblical Theology
Dr. Walter Brueggemann
Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary
"Why the Old Testament Must not Go Away"
March 3, 2014
This presentation will consider efforts in the church to deny the Old Testament and explore what is at stake in it for the church. Brueggemann will propose that its cruciality is found in the God who inhabits the text, a God who, in contrast, keeps the future open, engages in dialogic freedom, and subverts unbearable presents. The denial (or engagement with) the Old Testament is never a disinterested matter, but is always a matter that concerns material interests as well as well as intellectual probity.
