Riddles and Revelations Explorations into the Relationship between Wisdom and Prophecy in the Hebrew Bible

by Mark J. (McMaster Divinity College, Canada) Boda

Part of the The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies Series

Riddles and Revelations Explorations into the Relationship between Wisdom and Prophecy in the Hebrew Bible Synopsis

A comprehensive examination of the links between wisdom literature and prophecy. The book is divided into four sections. The first addresses methodological concerns such as identifying wisdom, identifying potential sociological spheres for wisdom and prophecy in the ancient Near East, and recognizing potential textual relationships. The second examines the role of wisdom in the prophetic corpus more broadly in a book-by-book analysis of biblical texts, first examining the role of wisdom in the prophetic corpus of the Hebrew Bible. The third section looks at elements of prophecy within the traditional wisdom books such as Job, Proverbs and Qoheleth. Finally, the book continues the conversation by providing two concluding chapters that evaluate, critique, engage, and raise new questions that Hebrew Bible scholars will need to wrestle with as the search for the relationship between wisdom and prophecy moves forward.

Riddles and Revelations Explorations into the Relationship between Wisdom and Prophecy in the Hebrew Bible Press Reviews

As a whole, Riddles and Revelations is an important and much-needed work. Each of its major parts covers its chosen corpus in a representative and balanced way... Riddles and Revelations is a pleasurable and insightful reading experience. * Bulletin for Biblical Research * Assessing a collection of articles always challenges a reviewer, and this volume is no exception. The volume's tight editing, however, and use of review articles makes it a fine example of how collected volumes should work... The editors have done a remarkable job of curating a rich conversation, which will provoke many others. * Catholic Biblical Quarterly *
