This commentary on wisdom, worship, and poetry, excerpted from the Fortress Commentary on the Bible: The Old Testament and Apocrypha, engages readers in the work of biblical interpretation. Contributors connect historical-critical analysis with sensitivity to current theological, cultural, and interpretive issues.
Each chapter (Job through Song of Songs) includes an introduction and commentary based on three lenses: ancient context, the interpretative tradition, and contemporary questions and challenges.
Worship, Wisdom, and Poetry introduces fresh perspectives and draws students, preachers, and interested readers into the challenging work of interpretation.
