The essays presented in this volume mark the 70 birthday of Ronald Clements, who until his retirement, was the Samuel Davidson Professor of Old Testament Studies at King’s College in London. The theme of the volume reflects Clements’ recent interest in “wisdom” as an interpretative framework, and the essays address the role of theology and hermeneutics in biblical exegesis, through an examination of methods and approaches as well as by application to specific Old Testament writings. While the volume ranges through issues of canon, biblical theology, and literary criticism, with several essays on the prophetic books, it maintains a clear focus on the numerous issues and challenges facing the contemporary interpreter of the Scriptures.
