Overview
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 neighbors and discuss the place of wisdom in Israelite religion, theology and society.

Publishers Description
Despite much attention to the Wisdom literature of the Old Testament in recent years, there is still great uncertainty about the nature of wisdom in relation to the thought world of the ancient Near East in general and about its impact on the rest of the Old Testament. In this volume the issues are surveyed and evaluated by an international group of specialist contributors. 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. Each essay includes a useful survey of relevant recent studies, and the many insights offered by the contributors should make this volume of interest to students and scholars alike.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An exceptional work on the social context Wisdom lit.  Feb 5, 1997
Despite frequent consideration of the wisdom tradition in the Hebrew scriptures in recent years, there is still a redoubtable incertitude about the nature of wisdom writings as they relate to the larger intellectual traditions of the ancient near east cultures in general and about their influence on the Hebrew scriptures as a whole. In this festschrift for noted ancient near east Wisdom literature specialist John Adney Emerton, these problems are methodically promoted, assessed and appraised by an international assortment of specialists. In addition to full coverage of the wisdom books and other literature most frequently considered to have been affected by them, thematic studies also introduce the principal comparative sources among Israel's neighbors and discuss the place of wisdom in Israelite religion, theology and society. Each essay contains a useful survey of relevant recent studies, and the many fresh insights offered by the contributors will make this volume necessary to students and scholars alike.
