Everyone speaks of freedom. No one would think to oppose it. Many patriotic Americans pledge allegiance with a ringing affirmation of "liberty and justice for all." However, many of us also forget that the word freedom has roots in biblical faith. But that biblical theme has, in recent centuries in the West, been filtered through patriotism and individualism. What does freedom mean to a Christian? What is God's idea of freedom for us?

In this one-session adult study, "Freedom: A Christian Understanding," world-renowned Old Testament interpreter Walter Brueggemann traces how freedom was conceived in the Bible, first by Moses, then the prophets, then Jesus, and finally Paul. He then shows how it has evolved in modern times and challenges Christians to return to freedom's radical roots.

Walter Brueggemann is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary. An ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, he is the author of dozens of books, including Sabbath as Resistance: Saying No to the Culture of NowJourney to the Common Good, and Chosen? Reading the Bible amid the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.
