Book Information

Each author and each chapter of the book simultaneously engages the Bible, the church and the world – a three-part engagement that was fundamental to the acclaimed careers of Brueggemann and Cousar.

The contributors, who hold similar academic distinction for cutting-edge biblical studies, are able to emulate and even expand upon the honorees’ groundbreaking bodies of work They include David Petersen, J. Louis Martyn, Leander Keck, Patrick Miller, Louis Stulman, Beverly R. Gaventa, and Carol Newsom, as well as the four volume editors.

Shaking Heaven and Earth: Essays in Honor of Walter Brueggemann and Charles B. Cousar contains the contributions of 13 biblical scholars. Forming an inclusion in the volume are chapters 1 and 13 by Cousar and Brueggemann, respectively. The volumes contributors participated in a colloquium entitled Shaking Heaven and Earth: Bible, Church, and the Changing Global Order held in April 2003 (x). The Colloquiums text was Yet once more, I will shake not only the ea rth but also the heaven (Heb 12:26) (7). The essay topics span both Testaments. What strikes one immediately about this slim volume is the sincere collegiality, deep respect, and genuine love the contributors extend toward Cousar and Brueggemann. Each honoree is a professor emeritus at Columbia Theological Seminary. Brueggemann served as the William Marcellus McPheeter Professor of Old Testament and Cousar as the Samuel A. Cartledge Professor of New Testament. Writing in the preface, the editors (all current Columbia Seminary professors) set the tone by summing up the theology of the honorees: Walter Brueggemann and Charlie Cousar have told us repeatedly to watch for the ways Gods Word shakes the earth (xi). Yet although Gods Word shakes the earth, Gods r ealm is unshakeable, they continue, and the proper response to this unshakeable fact is worship, reverence, and thanksgiving (xi). [Full Review]
