This review explores two chapters of The Prophetic Imagination by Walter Brueggemann in celebration of the 35th anniversary of its publication. It provides a brief summary of the third and fourth chapters, and then discusses the application of those chapters within the context of Pentecostal communities, particularly from the perspective of Australian Pentecostalism and women. An application from the Australian context is to avoid abuses of power by heeding the voice of the marginalized within our organizational structures. In contrast, an application from the perspective of Pentecostal women highlights the engendered nature of Brueggemann’s model. If the prophet (according to Brueggemann) is to weep for the death of royal consciousness, the challenge for women is that their weeping is too easily misunderstood or misinterpreted as ‘emotional’ or ‘hormonal’. Instead, an alternative approach is suggested that draws from the heritage of women prophets, that is, to not weep but to sing.
