Sheffield Old Testament Guides: Proverbs


Sheffield Academic Press 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In this book James Martin introduces not only Proverbs, but also the genre of wisdom literature in general (dealing with such questions as the origin and location of “wisdom” in ancient Israel). He discusses the structure of the book of Proverbs as a whole, provides a guided reading to the sustained discourses in chapters 1–9 and to the collections of Proverb-type sentences in the remaining chapters, and considers the relationship of Proverbs to other ancient Near Eastern literature. This guide is completed with essays entitled “The Feminine in the Book of Proverbs” and “Wisdom and Theology.”
