In this collection, an international group of specialists considers the nature of wisdom in relation to the thought world of the ancient Near East and its impact on the rest of the Old Testament. In addition to full coverage of the wisdom books and other literature most frequently thought to have been influenced by them, thematic studies also introduce the principal comparative sources among Israel's neighbours and discuss the place of wisdom in Israelite religion, theology, and society.

John Day (University of Oxford), Robert P. Gordon (University of Cambridge), Hugh Godfrey Maturin Williamson (University of Oxford)

'This collection immediately becomes mandatory reading for students of the Old Testament because of its breadth, erudition, and state-of-the-art currency. Anyone wishing to encounter more closely and intelligently the riches of the Old Testament's wisdom writings should spend time with it.' Regent's Reviews 'The many fresh insights offered by the contributors will make this volume necessary to students and scholars alike.' Word Trade
