This review offers an appreciative assessment of Walter Brueggemann’s The Practice of Prophetic Imagination: Preaching an Emancipatory Word. Following an overview of the book, a Pentecostal response to several of Brueggemann’s key claims is presented. Topics in the response include competing worldviews, the situating of God at the center, the marginalizing effect of challenging the dominant view, the affective dimension of prophetic expression, the focus upon the biblical text, the necessity of lament, and the two-fold message of judgment and hope. The review concludes with suggested areas for further dialogue on the vital and timely topic of prophetic preaching.
