Publisher's Summary

Fr. Harrington brings to life the social and religious climate of the ancient world. The everyday help that Proverbs offered the ancients is explained in clear and concise manner. The importance of the fear of the Lord is captured in Sirach and Wisdom. The poem of the good wife that ends Proverbs is astonishingly modern. The context of this poem is the key to its understanding. Honor and shame, evil and death, afterlife, friendship, and community are all delved into in these works.
