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. He also uses other wisdom sayings, particularly those from ancient Africa, to illustrate the logical progression of wisdom poetry from being simply observational in character to becoming more universal in character.
