Renowned scholar and friend of Highland, Walter Brueggemann, will be Highland’s proclaimer this Sunday at its 8:30, 9:30 and 11:00 services.
Brueggemann is one of the most influential Bible interpreters of our time. He is the author of over one hundred books and numerous scholarly articles. He continues to be a highly sought-after speaker.
He completed his formal theological education at Union Theological Seminary in 1961, earning the Th.D.
Brueggemann has served as faculty at two institutions in his career: Eden Theological Seminary (1961-1986) and Columbia Theological Seminary (1986-2003). He is currently William Marcellus McPheeters professor emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia.
Church leaders find a friend in Brueggemann, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. His work inspires, energizes, and convicts, and he always makes time to interact personally with those to whom he speaks at large events.
A longtime St. Louis Cardinals/Browns fan, Brueggemann and wife, Tia, currently reside in Cincinnati, Ohio.
