Roots of Wisdom: the Oldest Proverbs of Israel

Full Product Description

In this book, Claus Westermann argues that Israel's early wisdom literature grew out of an oral tradition reflecting an agrarian setting. Dealing primarily with Proverbs 10-31, Westermann demonstrates how the wisdom literature evolved into a form of poetry that had greater universal appeal as the people of Israel became more urbanized. A distinctive feature of "Roots of Wisdom" is Westermann's use of other wisdom sayings, particularly those from ancient Africa, to illustrate the logical progression of wisdom poetry being simply observational in character to becoming more universal in character.

Roots of Wisdom: the Oldest Proverbs of Israel by Claus Westermann was published by Westminster John Knox in January 1995. The ISBN for Roots of Wisdom: the Oldest Proverbs of Israel is 9780664255596.
