Dianne Bergant offers a fresh approach to all the wisdom books of the Hebrew Bible and the Greek Apocrypha: Job, selected psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Wisdom of Solomon, and Sirach. She concentrates on the final canonical from of each book and takes the "integrity of creation" as the basic interpretive perspective. This means, among other things, that the idea of the unity of humankind-indeed, the unity of all living things-lies at the heart of the approach.Israel's Wisdom Literature is part of a four-volume set, "A Liberation-Critical Reading of the Old Testament," edited by Alice L. Laffey. The Pentateuch (1988) is now available and volumes on Deuternomic history and the prophets will be forthcoming.ContentsEditor's ForewordPreface1 INTRODUCTIONThe Integrity of CreationInterpretive MethodThe Wisdom Literature of Ancient IsraelWorks Consulted2 JOBIntroductionReading the StoryRhetorical FunctionUnmasking the PowersInto the Looking GlassIn the Midst of MysteryWorks Consulted3 PSALMSIntroductionThe Law Is the Way of WisdomRhetorical FunctionUnmasking the PowersInto the Looking GlassTeach Me Your LawWorks Consulted4 PROVERBSIntroductionThe BookRhetorical FunctionUnmasking the PowersInto the Looking GlassThe Teaching of the WiseWorks Consulted5 ECCLESIASTESIntroductionThe BookRhetorical FunctionUnmasking the PowersInto the Looking GlassThe Gift of GodWorks Consulted6 SONG OF SONGSIntroductionThe BookRhetorical FunctionUnmasking the PowersInto the Looking GlassLove as Strong as DeathWorks Consulted7 WISDOM OF SOLOMONIntroductionThe BookRhetorical FunctionUnmasking the PowersInto the Looking GlassLove RighteousnessWorks Consulted8 SIRACHIntroductionThe BookRhetorical FunctionUnmasking the PowersInto the Looking GlassTo the Godly God Has Given WisdomWorks ConsultedIndex
