Wisdom Literature | [Dianne Bergant]

Wisdom Literature

The wisdom literature of the Bible was cherished in ancient Israel but was not exclusive to the people of God. The inspired writers borrowed from their neighbors in order to provide a religious humanism that is valid to this day. The sacred books ask hard questions of whether or not life has any meaning and practical answers of how to live the life we have been given well.

Publisher's Summary

Sr. Dianne Bergant examines the Wisdom literature from the perspective of the insights into human nature and behavior that can be found in this inspired literature. She brings alive the writings by making it clear how they can enlighten the human situation today. The wisdom literature of the Bible was cherished in ancient Israel but was not exclusive to the people of God. The inspired writers borrowed from their neighbors in order to provide a religious humanism that is valid to this day.

Beginning bible students, preachers, and teachers will all be enriched by this course on these sacred and very human books. Our place in creation is probed and the role of learning and science explored. Questions about the role of women are examined and insights into what makes up a just society reflected on. The listener is constantly challenged by questions about their own meaning in life, the role they must play, their understanding of God and suffering. The poetry and the passion of these sacred writings are brought into sharp focus in this intense course. A convenient outline comes with the program that helps the listener stay focused and will prove helpful for further study of these endlessly fascinating inspired writings.
