What every student of the Old Testament needs is a short volume, concise and comprehensive, manageable and affordable, on the biblical book he or she is studying, OLD TESTAMENT GUIDES have been designed with the student's needs in mind: - introduction to the contents of the biblical book - balanced survey of the important critical issues - concentration of theological perspectives - assessment of the most recent scholarship - cross-references to standard works on Old Testament - annotated bibliographies
This addition to Sheffield's acclaimed Old Testament Guides series introduces students not only to Proverbs but also to the genre of 'wisdom literature' in general (dealing with such questions as the origin and location of 'wisdom' in ancient Israel). Martin discusses the structure of the book of Proverbs as a whole, provides a guided reading to the more or less sustained discourses in chapters 1-9 and to the collections of proverb-type sentences in the remaining chapters, and considers the relationship of Proverbs to other ancient Near Eastern literature. The Guide is completed by essays on 'The Feminine in the Book of Proverbs' and 'Wisdom and Theology'.>
