Wisdom’s Wonder Character, Creation, and Crisis in the Bible's Wisdom Literature

William P Brown 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, effectively breaking an impasse that has plagued recent wisdom studies.

The Psalms as Christian Lament A Historical Commentary

Bruce K Waltke, James M Houston and Erika Moore Blends verse-by-verse commentary with a history of Psalms interpretation in the Church to examine 10 lament psalms, including the seven traditional penitential psalms. Though C S Lewis called the "imprecatory" psalms "contemptible," Waltke, Houston, and Moore show that they too are profitable for sound doctrine and so for spiritual health.

Reality, Grief, Hope Three Urgent Prophetic Tasks

Walter Brueggemann Brueggemann identifies a characteristic ideology of "exceptionalism" chosenness, entitlement, privilege which must be countered by prophetic realism and truth-telling. Denial must give way to honest grief. And, finally, widespread despair must be overcome by a buoyant hope. This sequence of ideology-realism, denial-grief, and despair-hope corresponds to Brueggemann's unpacking of the books of Jeremiah, Lamentations, and Isaiah.

Each essay acknowledges and comments on the exegetical contributions of Joseph Blenkinsopp, and the references to this influential scholar provide coherence and distinction to the collection.

Poetic Heroes The Literary Commemorations of Warriors and Warrior Culture in the Early Biblical World

Mark S Smith Undertakes an extensive exploration of "poetic heroes" across a number of ancient cultures in order to understand the attitudes of those cultures toward war and warriors. Smith examines the Iliad and the Gilgamesh; Ugaritic poems commemorating Baal, Aqhat, and the Rephaim; and early biblical poetry, including the battle hymn of Judges 5 and the lament of David over Saul and Jonathan in 2 Samuel 1.

The Inspiration and Interpretation of Scripture What the Early Church Can Teach Us

Michael Graves Graves delves into what Christians in the first five centuries believed about the inspiration of Scripture, identifying the ideas that early Christians considered to be logical implications of biblical inspiration. Many books presume to discuss how some current trend relates to the "traditional" view of biblical inspiration; this one actually describes in a detailed and nuanced way what the "traditional" view is and explores the differences between ancient and modern assumptions on the topic.
