Walter Brueggemann is Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary. Author of dozens of books, Brueggemann is always attuned to current realities. When originally written “Journey to the Common Good”(2010) spoke to an era defined in large part by America’s efforts to rebuild from an age of terror as it navigated its way through an economic collapse. Today the duel crisis of the pandemic and racial injustice present daunting new challenges for the church as it seeks the good of its neighbors. Hence Brueggemann’s 2021 update.
