0 Reviews
Once the 'poor relation' of biblical theology, Wisdom is now assuming a central role in the reconstruction of Israelite religion and the formation of scripture. This clear yet sophisticated study brings together creation, anthropology, myth, narrative, metaphor and much else in a comprehensive synthesis representing the fruits of nearly two decades of research by a leading student of Wisdom.
