    by Brendan Byrne
    In his book An Unsettling God, the biblical scholar and theologian Walter Brueggemann argues that the witness of the Hebrew Scriptures describes the relationship between God and humanity as one of “dialogical partnership”.[1] That is to say, that what we learn from the Hebrew Scriptures is that God and humanity are engaged in a constant, two-way, and mutual conversation, in which God speaks to humanity and humanity responds. And the way this dialogue occurs, its character and nature, takes various forms and is described in various ways in the different texts that make up the Hebrew Scriptures. The upshot, however, is that God and humanity are in constant communication. God speaks; we respond; and God speaks again.

    from Sacra Conversazione
    In God Without Being, Jean-Luc Marion ponders how the memory of God’s goodness in the past enables an appeal today for hope for the future. Marion writes: “It is a question of making an appeal, in the name of a past event, to GxD [in the original text, Marion puts an “X” through the “o”], in order that he recall an engagement (a covenant) that determines the instant presently given to the believing community. Whether it be a question of crossing the Red sea or of the conquest of the Promised Land, ‘the memorial of the Messiah’… the event remains less a past fact than a pledge given in the past in order, today still, to appeal to a future– an advent, that of the Messiah– that does not cease to given this day from beginning to end.”
