Worth Revisiting: A Walk in Wisdom

“Right discernment of life begins with an obedience discernment of YHWH the Creator” (Walter Brueggemann, An Introduction to the Old Testament, p. 309).  1 This quote by Bruggeman truly calls attention to just how we understand knowledge, and become aware of God’s immanence and transcendence.
