Review:

Walter Brueggemann
"An amazingly discerning and helpful book."

Hebrew Studies
"Murphy is one of the acclaimed doyens of the study of biblical literature. . . . This is a rich escort, providing many worthwhile insights into the wisdom literature."

Catholic Library World
"Murphy combines sound scholarship with a rich pedagogical approach. . . . This book can be recommended in every way. It provides a sure path for the uninitiated and may even provide new insights for the expert."

Religious Studies Review
"Murphy's wide reading and balanced judgment enrich the additions to each of the nine chapters, conveniently linked to page numbers in the earlier book."

The Bible Today
"A fine text for a survey of the material."

Theological Book Review (U.K.)
"This admirably structured work should be an essential purchase for biblical libraries, and a valuable resource for any serious student working in the area. Strongly recommended."

Journal of Semitic Studies
"A standard introduction to the Israelite wisdom literature."

Review of Biblical Literature
"Highly recommended for both collegiate and graduate school students. Unquestionably, this work is one of the finest introductions to Israel's wisdom literature in print."
