About this product
- DescriptionWisdom's Wonder offers a fresh reading of the Hebrew Bible's wisdom literature with a unique emphasis on wonder as the framework for understanding biblical wisdom. William Brown argues that wonder effectively integrates biblical wisdom's emphasis on character formation and its outlook on creation, breaking an impasse that has plagued recent wisdom studies. Drawing from various disciplines - from philosophy to neuroscience - Brown discovers new distinctions and connections among Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes. An extensive revision and expansion of Brown's Character in Crisis (Eerdmans, 1996), this book demonstrates that the wisdom books are much more than simply advice literature: with wonder as the foundation for understanding, Brown maintains that wisdom is a process with transformation of self as the goal.
- Author BiographyWilliam P. Brown is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia. Other books of his include The Seven Pillars of Creation: The Bible, Science, and the Ecology of Wonder and Seeing the Psalms: A Theology of Metaphor.
