Instructor: Job and Wisdom BIB532 / B

Wisdom literature addresses difficult and probing questions about the meaning of life, freedom, responsibility, divine-human interaction, suffering and the problem of evil, the function of praise and lament, and the ethics that flow from a proper theology. In this course, we will discuss the perspectives presented by the wisdom traditions, especially as manifested in the books of Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes.
