Finally Comes the Poet

Finally Comes the PoetFinally Comes the Poet by Walter Brueggemann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A powerful and vivid description of the art of preaching. With interesting comments on the task of listening, engaging in conversation, and building communion. His unpacking of a few biblical stories is quite good, but then he is the greatest living commentator on the Old Testament.

This book was a gift from a retired minister whose newborn granddaughter's funeral I did this winter.
