This week we speak with Dr. Walter Brueggemann. He is one of the most influential Bible interpreters of our time and the author of over one hundred books and numerous scholarly articles. He continues to be a highly sought-after speaker.
Brueggemann attended Elmhurst College, graduating in 1955 with an A.B. He went on to Eden Theological Seminary, earning a B.D. (equivalent to today’s M.Div.) in 1958. He completed his formal theological education at Union Theological Seminary in 1961, earning the Th.D. under the primary guidance of James Muilenburg. While teaching at Eden, he earned a Ph.D. in education at St. Louis University.
Brueggemann has served as faculty at two institutions in his career: Eden Theological Seminary (1961-1986) and Columbia Theological Seminary (1986-2003). He is currently William Marcellus McPheeters professor emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia.
Some of Dr. Brueggemann’s recent books: Remember You Are Dust, Embracing Transformation, An Other Kingdom, Names for the Messiah, & God, Neighbor, Empire.
