Perspectives on Israelite Wisdom : Proceedings of the Oxford Old Testament Seminar Hardback
Edited by John J. Jarick
Part of the The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies series
This collection of essays examines the wisdom traditions of the Old Testament from a variety of angles.
The slipperiness of the concept of `wisdom literature', the transmission of `wise' advice for living, rabbinic and patristic approaches to the Bible's wisdom traditions, and cutting-edge modern perspectives on such Old Testament books as Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes are all to be found here. In the tradition of the renowned previous volumes from the Oxford Old Testament Seminar - King and Messiah in Israel and the Ancient Near East (1998), In Search of Pre-Exilic Israel (2004), Temple and Worship in Biblical Israel (2005), and Prophecy and Prophets in Ancient Israel (2010)-this new volume again brings the scholarship of the Oxford Seminar, here focused on the rich subject of Old Testament wisdom traditions, to an international readership.
