Israel's Wisdom Literature:A Liberation-Critical Reading of the Old Testament

product image
Dianne Bergant offers a fresh approach to all the wisdom books of the Hebrew Bible and the Greek Apocrypha. She concentrates on the final canonical form of each book and takes the "integrity of creation" as the basic interpretive perspective. This means, among other things, that the idea of the unity of humankind - indeed, the unity of all living things - lies at the heart of the approach.
