A completely new, expanded edition of this classic college text book about two key kinds of writing in the Old Testament: wisdom and law. Completely revised and updated, the book also includes much more on literary interpretation.
a valuable work for the reader who wishes to take a broader view. * Theology * This study belongs to a biblical series which is devoted to groups of books rather than single books. It describes quite fully the contents of the wisdom and legal portions of the Old Testament and early Jewish literature ... Especially valuable is the treatment of this coming together in early Judaism, so important for a proper appreciation of New Testament polemic. * John C L Gibson, Edinburgh University, tbr Vol. 8, No. 2, February 1996 *
