Simple Living Works! Podcast
Walter Brueggemann is surely 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.
Brueggemann was born in Nebraska in 1933. At Union Theological Seminary he earning the Th.D. under the primary guidance of James Muilenburg. He also earned a Ph.D. in education at St. Louis University.
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.

Simpler Formats for 2018–SLW! Weekly Digest will be discontinued and the SLW! Podcast will be reduced to one episode per month, issued on the 15th. The complete SLW! Monthly Digest on the SLW! site will continue to feature the latest posts from colleague organizations and will be updated weekly. Simpler Living Weekly Nudge will feature offerings from SLW! It comes as your free subscription to SLW! Blog. The Daily Nudge comes by email (send NUDGE to SimpleLivingworks@yahoo.com) or by Twitter @GeraldIversen. Choose the options that work for you.
Subscribers to SLW! Podcast will receive The Common Good Podcast (TCGP)–which I produce and co-host–on the 1st of the month. Likewise, subscribers to TCGP will receive SLW! Podcast on the 15th as a BONUS. So, SLW! Podcast subscribers will continue to receive two episodes per month. This makes good sense since the missions of both SLW! and Jubilee OneEarth Economics are so complementary and the two work together closely. For example, I blog on the Jubilee site at CasaJubileo.org occasionally. Your comments on these changes are welcome.
Bonus: Derek and Nancy Casady of The Climate Mobilization Confront Climate Crises
Earth’s climate and livability are the biggest issue before us in 2018! That’s why our first episode of the year brings you the articulate voices of Nancy and Derek Casady. Listeners, you’ll hear their stories of why, after all the great experiences of their lives to date, they are now ardently devoted to mobilizing more of us to reverse climate change—still doable, but only if we mobilize like the Allied Powers did in WWII. Hence the name Climate Mobilization. Why should war mobilize us more fervently than working against aggressive powers destroying Earth’s livability?
