"Norman Whybray wrote extensively on Proverbs and Ecclesiastes and his interests extended to Job, Ben Sira and wider areas of concern such as the relationship of wisdom to other Old Testament books and genres. This collection brings together for the first time all of Norman Whybray's articles on this subject, thus not only inspiring afresh but also providing a useful resource for scholars interested in that enigmatic group of writings that make up the wisdom literature of the Old Testament."--BOOK JACKET.

This collection of articles confirms Norman Whybray's place as one of of the foremost contributors to scholarship on wisdom literature in the last three decades of the twentieth century. A former President of the Society for Old Testament Study and winner of the British Academy's Burkitt Medal, Whybray wrote extensively on Proverbs and Ecclesiastes and his interests extended to Job, Ben Sira and wider areas of concern such as the relationship of wisdom to other Old Testament books and genres. Including a Preface by David Clines and an Introduction by Katharine J. Dell, this collection brings together for the first time all of Norman Whybray's articles in this subject, thus not only inspiring afresh but also providing a useful resource for scholars interested in that enigmatic group of writings that make up the wisdom literature of the Old Testament.
