Product Description

Exploring the Old Testament Volume 3: A Guide to the Psalms and Wisdom Literature aims to help students study the Psalms, and wisdom writings. Like other volumes in the EOT and ENT series, it is intended to give the student a primary resource to enable him or her to study the texts independently. It provides an introduction to each book, which includes a survey of the main trends in recent study of the book. A basic commentary, pointers to theological interpretation and interactive panels are provided throughout the book. All Scripture quotations are taken from the New Revised Standard Version, unless otherwise noted. Each chapter is supplied with lists of commentaries and other works, so as to open a range of critical and interpretative literature on the Psalms and Wisdom literature.

Features:

  • Introduces the Psalms and Wisdom literature
  • Examines types of psalms, their use in worship, the structure and growth of the book of Psalms, and theology in the psalms
  • Features mini-commentaries on Job, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs
  • Aids teachers and students with discussion ideas and questions
  • Features "Digging Deeper" panels that explore select topics in greater detail
  • Provides "Further Reading" suggestions with select commentaries and studies on each book
  • Includes suggestions for research, debate and essay assignments

Publisher's Description

Israel's poets and sages left a scriptural legacy that has powerfully shaped the worship, thoughts and actions of the people of God. In the highs and lows and crossroads of life, we instinctively turn to their poetry, proverbs and discourses for the language we do not possess and the wisdom we desperately seek. Yet there is more to this literature than meets the eye--or fills the momentary need. A study of the Bible's wisdom and poetry will dramatically enhance its power and effectiveness. From the depths of lament to the heights of praise, from the eroticism of the Song of Songs to the hard realism of Ecclesiastes, and from the aphorisms of Proverbs to the discourses of Job, this guide introduces readers to the ancient background, the literary artistry, and the varied and timeless messages of the Psalms and Wisdom literature. Ernest C. Lucas gives us an informed, illuminating and interactive introduction to this portion of Scripture. Sparkling with interest and geared to the needs of students, this is an excellent textbook introduction to the Psalms and Wisdom literature.
