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.
