Editorial Reviews


“This collection of essays on Wisdom in Jewish and Christian biblical and non-biblical texts discloses just how widespread and significant the figure of Lady Wisdom was in Jewish and Christian thought at the turn of the era. Here Philo and the Pseudepigrapha, in particular, receive the attention to which they are entitled. The book offers challenge and illumination for the mind as it feeds the spirit, thus fulfilling the purpose of the series of which it is a part.” —Walter Harrelson, Vanderbilt Divinity School, Emeritus, Wake Forest University Divinity School, Adjunct (Walter Harrelson,)

“Admirably brief yet masterfully comprehensive, refreshingly readable yet thoroughly rounded in primary texts, this collaboration of five distinguished scholars guides the reader through the evolution of Wisdom in post-biblical Judaism and the Gospel of John. This is a book I will recommend often. A reader who spends even a few hours with it will gain, well, wisdom!” –R. Alan Culpepper, McAfee School of Theology, Mercer University (R. Alan Culpepper)

“The book…makes a contribution to extending to a wider audience the conversation about wisdom traditions…[it is] a useful resource for nonspecialized readers, including undergraduate students, religious educators, and preachers.” –Catholic Biblical Quarterly, Vol. 66, 2004 (Catholic Biblical Quarterly)
