73.3 - Walter Brueggemann on Justice from Below & Brad Strawn as Confession as Justice
In their lectures delivered at the 2015 Fuller Forum, Walter Brueggemann, renowned author and Old Testament scholar, presented the idea of two kinds of justices—predatory justice from above and transformative justice from below—and contended that the Bible depicts a contestation between both; and Brad Strawn, Everlyn and Frank Freed Professor of the Integration of Psychology, spoke to how the acts of confession and truth-telling bring healing not only to individuals but to the world. The 2015 Fuller Forum explored the themes of justice, grace, and law and how each shapes our understanding of the church’s relationship with God and the church’s ministry in the world. Joined by Fuller scholars and other guests, renowned Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann, featured as the conference’s keynote speaker. Author of over a hundred books, he is the William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary.
