Part of the The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies series

Description

A comprehensive examination of the links between wisdom literature and prophecy.

The book is divided into four sections. The first addresses methodological concerns such as identifying "wisdom," identifying potential sociological spheres for wisdom and prophecy in the ancient Near East, and recognizing potential textual relationships.

The second examines the role of wisdom in the prophetic corpus more broadly in a book-by-book analysis of biblical texts, first examining the role of wisdom in the prophetic corpus of the Hebrew Bible.

The third section looks at elements of prophecy within the traditional wisdom books such as Job, Proverbs and Qoheleth.

Finally, the book continues the conversation by providing two concluding chapters that evaluate, critique, engage, and raise new questions that Hebrew Bible scholars will need to wrestle with as the search for the relationship between wisdom and prophecy moves forward.
