Interrupting Silence

Interrupting Silence

Silence is a complex matter. It can refer to awe before unutterable holiness, but it can also refer to the coercion where some voices are silenced in the interest of control by the dominant voices. It is the latter silence that Walter Brueggemann explores, urging us to speak up in situations of injustice.

Interrupting Silence illustrates that the Bible is filled with stories where marginalized people break repressive silence and speak against it. Examining how maintaining silence allows the powerful to keep control, Brueggemann motivates readers to consider situations in their lives where they need to either interrupt silence or be part of the problem, convincing us that God is active and wanting us to act for justice.

Reviews

Brueggemann highlights the ways, in scripture, in which speaking out unbalanced the status quo... there is much to challenge us today.
Church Times
Brueggemann couches his arguments in clear language and uses memorable metaphors... An easy and enjoyable read... The deceptively simple prose contains profoundly challenging ideas.
