This is an astounding collection of twenty-five essays by one of the world's leading Old Testament scholars. Profoundly theological and literary in character, these essays represent both original research and insightful readings, as well as interaction with the best of current scholarships. Assembled from a decade or so of published articles, the collection reflects the changes in interpretive analysis over the past quarter of a century. Crenshaw fundamentally concerns himself with two objectives: to discern how the composers of biblical literature thought they arrived at truths concerning the world, and how to understand these insights insofar as humanly possible. The scope of the essays focuses on prophets and sages, primarily around themes of of epistemology and theodicy. The collection includes twelve essays on various aspects of sapiential research, seven on prophecy, and an additional six in "the area somewhere between the two."
