Voice of the Day: Brueggemann

I’ve been reading The Collected Sermons of Walter Brueggemann as part of my devotional life. I wanted to share the following with you, it’s probably the first of many.

The Bible regularly confesses more than it understands. It claims more than can ever be explained. Its exuberant, unrestrained overstatement is an embarrassment to us. The Bible dares to assert that a miracle from God stands central to our faith and at the bottom of life.
