Summary
"This course surveys biblical wisdom literature by a study of important scriptural texts, including Proverbs, Job, Qoheleth (Ecclesiastes), Sirach (Ecclesiasticus), Song of Songs (Canticle of Canticles), Daniel, Wisdom of Solomon, and selections from the Gospels as well as from the book of Psalms. The lectures take up the array of topics and problems that are recurrent in the Bible's sapiential books, with special emphasis on the problem of the suffering of the innocent but also including such themes as friendship, virtue and vice, marriage and the choice of a spouse, decision making, life priorities, child rearing, illness, and death"--Taken from Scope on p. 1 of guidebook
