In this volume, John Goldingay explores three books of the Old Testament in the wisdom literature genre. These three books are all associated with Solomon and his wisdom, yet unlike other books, they do not mention the Torah, the exodus, or the covenant. As Goldingay says, “The basis of their teaching is the way life actually works. They look at life and reflect on experience and encourage people to live on the basis of how life works.” Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs for Everyone explores three practical, down to earth, and hopeful books.

Isaiah for Everyone

In this volume on Isaiah, John Goldingay explores the first of the great prophetic books. Isaiah is a compilation of the prophetic messages of several prophets. Their messages to the people of Judah and Jerusalem included a call for injustice to be recognized, a message of liberation and hope from the oppressors of the people, and a message of the coming day of judgment. These separate messages are held together by the promise of a new age of redemption and peace that lies beyond the crisis of judgment.

Jeremiah for Everyone

In this volume on Jeremiah, John Goldingay explores the longest and most complex of the prophetic books. Jeremiah was written for survivors of war, suffering, and exile. It portrays three Babylonian military invasions and the resulting destruction of the temple in Jerusalem, which Jeremiah depicts as the end of the life God’s people had known. Themes in the book include wrestling with the questions: How could God allow this suffering? How did things go so terribly wrong? How could God abandon us? Can the flame of faith burn in the darkness?

John Goldingay has been at Fuller Theological Seminary since 1997 and currently serves as the David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament in the School of Theology. Before coming to Fuller, Goldingay was principal and a professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at St. John’s Theological College in Nottingham, England. He is the author of several books, including John Goldingay’s Old Testament Theology (3 vols.), Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms: Psalms, vol. 2, and Theological Diversity and the Authority of the Old Testament.
