Product Description

Davis takes seriously the fact that these three books are poetry - and practical poetry at that. That is, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs aim to generate reflection on both the most ordinary and the most far-reaching experiences of life: birth and death, poverty and wealth, education and work, grief and joy, human love and love of God. To the Israelite sages, the sacred and secular were not separate realms of experience and concern. And these books, as wisdom literature, can speak with particular power to the spiritual needs of our highly secularized age.

Publisher's Description

These books of the Bible, despite their differences, all treat the phenomenon of what it means to live wisely before God. In this readable commentary, Ellen Davis points out that the writers of these books considered wisdom--and the fruits of wisdom, a well-ordered life and a peaceful mind--to be within the grasp of anyone wholeheartedly desiring it.

Books in the Westminster Bible Companion series assist laity in their study of the Bible as a guide to Christian faith and practice. Each volume explains the biblical book in its original historical context and explores its significance for faithful living today. These books are ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and groups.
