The wisdom of Walter Brueggemann, renowned Old Testament scholar, author, professor, and UCC pastor, sets the tone for this DVD and discussion-based class. Observations about the Hebrew people’s experiences of power and economics under Pharaoh’s control in Egypt are compared and contrasted with the production-consumption society that defines so much of American life today. Brueggemann brings insights to both the ancient story and our own. Those insights followed by group discussion offer hopeful possibilities for personal and systemic transformation. People of faith are called to move from the burden of Pharaoh’s scarcity to the blessing of God’s abundance.
