Exploring Old Testament Wisdom
David G. Firth & Lindsay Wilson
Exploring Old Testament Wisdom: Literature and Themes, edited by David G. Firth and Lindsay Wilson. This volume surveys recent developments in the study of Old Testament wisdom; issues that have arisen in discussion of Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes; examines the Song of Songs, Ruth and some Psalms as wisdom texts. In doing so, this book explores wisdom and biblical theology, the concept of retribution, and the issue of divine absence.
