Interpreting the Wisdom Books An Exegetical Handbook Edward M. Curtis; David M. Howard Jr., series editor HANDBOOKS FOR OLD TESTAMENT EXEGESIS A trustworthy guide to interpreting and preaching the Wisdom books The Wisdom Literature of the Bible (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs) is filled with practical principles for everyday life. While some Christians are deterred by the pragmatic character of these matter-of-fact guidelines, they are as integral to God’s purposes for His people as the explicitly theological material that dominates other parts of Scripture. The Wisdom books tie these two streams of God’s revelation together in a way that enriches and strengthens the church. It is a thorough resource for pastors and teachers to help them navigate the sometimes bewildering waters of the Wisdom Literature. Edward M. Curtis is professor of biblical and theological studies at Biola University in La Mirada, California. He is the author of several books, including the Zondervan Bible Study Commentary and Discovering the Way of Wisdom: Spirituality in the Wisdom Literature. 978-0-8254-4230-8 • $21.99 Paperback • 6 x 9 • 208 pages Biblical Studies / Wisdom Literature Kregel Academic • Rights: World September 26, 2017 ISBN 978-0-8254-4230-8 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 2 3 0 8
