Product description

Wisdom is both a theme in scripture and desirable in biblical interpretation and theology. It should prove a fruitful focus for this volume, which engages with key issues and texts dealing with scripture and theology. The contributors look at how the Bible and theology have come together in the past - in Judaism, the early Church, the Middle Ages, early modernity and the 20th century. They question how current biblical scholarship is to be related to past insights and modern methods and debate how wisdom is to be related to faith and reason. They also discuss Jesus as "the wisdom of God".
