By Stuart Weeks
A close exam of Proverbs 1-9, an early Jewish poetic paintings. Stuart Weeks comprises experiences of literature from old Egypt and from the useless Sea scrolls, yet his concentration is at the history and use of definite key photographs within the textual content. Proverbs 1-9 belongs to a tremendous type of biblical literature (wisdom literature), and is much less renowned as a complete than the comparable books of task and Ecclesiastes, partially since it has been considered till lately as a lifeless and muddled school-book. even though, elements of it were profoundly influential at the improvement of either Judaism and Christianity, and occupy a key position in smooth feminist theology. Weeks demonstrates that these elements belong to a wider and extra tricky set of principles than older scholarship allowed.
