If you want me to dislike a book call it "an essential guide. Plus the first couple chapters I felt were good, but just okay. I was ready to give this a middle of the road review. Then I read the last chapter and loved it.

Bruggemann talks If you want me to dislike a book call it "an essential guide. Bruggemann talks about seven aspects of "play" in Israel's worship. By "play," Bruggemann has in mind a sort of dialectic tension. He describes the tensions at play in the way that Israel's worship: - requires both obedience AND freedom - emphasizes both holiness AND justice - consists of both the liturgy of the state cult AND the everyday worship of family and clan - holds in tension an emphasis on Torah AND the expectation of a Davidic monarch - deals with the reality of God's presence AND his absence - has a place for both praise AND lament - is informed by corporate memory of God's saving action AND the hope of future redemption These tensions are not simply descriptive of Ancient Isreal's worship but are instructive in Christian worship as well.
I found this tremendously helpful and insightful about how the Bible informs current worship practices and what we should continue to value. This is vintage Bruggemann and worth a read.

Badcock, "God of the Covenant," in Covenant Theology ed. Mark J. Cartledge and David Mills; Waynesboro, Ga. It belongs to the category of something which is spoken about Yahweh's relationship to particular persons, to his people, or to the whole of human race.

Avraham Gileadi; Grand Rapids: Baker, , ; to mention a few.

James D. Although Eileen M. Schuller employed Malachi as a name in her work and followed recognised convention, declared that the oracles in the book of Malachi are basically nameless and operate autonomously of the prophetic personnel. See Eileen M. These three distinct units of prophetic oracles were at a time included in the same prophetic compendium which was later inserted in their current position in the canon randomly.
