A Must for Biblical students, scholars and veracity seekers Feb 6, 2001
Life has its mystery, which often baffles and challenges those that seek its secrets. For millenniums Old Testament wisdom literature has given reflections and observations about the reality of life. Most of the teachings from these texts comes from "experiential wisdom," wise words based on encounters with life, not theory. Wisdom literature excels in bestowing to the reader instructions on how to live, find happiness and prosper. They are the world's first "How To" books.
One of the leading specialists in Old Testament Wisdom literature is James L. Crenshaw, Professor of Old Testament at Duke University Divinity School. For more than 30 years he has written provocative essays on Ecclesiastes, Proverbs and Job. In "Urgent Advice and Probing Questions," you will find 37 essays that contain valuable and insightful information. This should not be a `one sitting' reading, for the depth and discrimination used in examining these texts requires selective reading. However, for those Biblical students, scholars and veracity seekers, "Urgent Advice and Probing Questions" will be a book that you will return to over and over. Highly Recommended
