"Interrupting Silence: God's Command to Speak Out" is a new book by Walter Brueggemann. For 8 chapters, Dr. Brueggemann walks readers through an in depth Bible study about why and how Christians must speak out and act in solidarity with those who are oppressed and marginalized.
We will discuss the full book in two sessions covering four chapters each time. Our second session will be August 28, 1-2 PM.
Chapter Titles: The Oppressed Break Silence, Prophets Refuse to Be Silenced, Silence Kills, Jesus Rudely Interrupted, Casting Out Silence, The Crowd as Silencer, Truth Speaks to Power, and The Church as a Silencing Institution.
