In this segment Walter Brueggemann, an Old Testament scholar and world-renown theologian, leads us to consider lament, the switching of narratives, and life as covenant. We filmed this conversation with Walter two years ago, in an '88 Oldsmobile parked in an empty parking lot outside an abandoned mall in Cincinnati, Ohio. It’s uncanny how closely that scene resembles our current reality. His, a voice we need to hear, carrying nearly 100 years of lived experience and most of that spent in the study and teaching of ancient scriptures.
"There is another, more excellent way. We don’t have to live like this," says Walter.
