The tree of life : an exploration of biblical wisdom literature by Roland E Murphy( Book )
23 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and held by 1,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since 1990 Roland Murphy's Tree of Life has been a standard introduction to the wisdom literature of the Bible. Now The Tree of Life is available in a third edition, complete with a new preface by the author and a special supplement that surveys the latest developments in wisdom research. This superb study thoroughly explores the wisdom writings of the Bible, interpreting this literature in a way that illumines the development of Israel's search for wisdom throughout its tumultuous history. Murphy looks at each wisdom book individually -- Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, Ecclesiasticus, and Wisdom of Solomon -- and adds to them a discussion of wisdom from other parts of the Old Testament. His careful investigations expose the various guises that wisdom adopts -- the 'fear of the Lord, ' moral formation, the universality of human experience, the mysteries of creation, and others"--P. [4] of cover
