About the Author:

Donn F. Morgan is President and Dean, and Professor of Old Testament, The Church Divinity School of the Pacific.

Review:

"Beginning with modern theory on the educative task, Donn Morgan attempts to discover the nature of contemporary sagacity as viewed throught the lens provided by biblical wisdom. His provocative juxtaposition of sages, ancient and modern, generates more questions than answers, and in doing so continues the work begun millennia ago in a very different context." —James L. Crenshaw, Robert L. Flowers Professor of Old Testament Duke University (James L. Crenshaw)

"Donn Morgan has long since demonstrated his profound understanding of the wisdom traditions of the Old Testament. Here he pushes his thinking into interdisciplinary quarters, thinking like the educator he is. His articulation of the sage has a ring of contemporaneity to it, as he ponders reflective voices who lead the community of inquiry down under technical competences to the more hidden, more urgent questions of design, responsibility, and interependence. His inquiry serves, at the same time, to vivify Old Testament traditions and to address contemporary educators in the university, the seminary and in society more generally. Morgan, himself, here functions as a sage inviting readers to fresh, engaging reflection." —Walter Brueggemann William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary (Walter Brueggemann)

"Morgan deftly juxtaposes biblical and contemporary perspectives on what makes a "sage." Morgan cleaves to his goal of urging the church and other communities of faith "to relate wisdom of the past to new challenges and changing circumstances" (p.xvii). Eager for present-day professionals to engage biblical sages as dialogue partners, Morgan points the way by considering the identity and social location of ancient sages and their contemporary counterparts."—J. Kenneth Kuntz,The University of Iowa, reviewed for Interpretation, April 2003 (J. Kenneth Kuntz)

"Beginning with modern theory on the educative task, Donn Morgan
attempts to discover the nature of contemporary sagacity as viewed
throught the lens provided by biblical wisdom. His provocative
juxtaposition of sages, ancient and modern, generates more questions
than answers, and in doing so continues the work begun millennia ago in
a very different context." —James L. Crenshaw, Robert L. Flowers
Professor of Old Testament Duke University
“Donn F. Morgan’s biblical wisdom and contemporary management and learning theory gather materials generated over a period of fifteen years. The essays glean from the best in wisdom studies over that period, and provide for the casual or scholarly reader a useful survey of where that sub-discipline of biblical studies has been going.” –Anglican Theological Review, Summer 2004 (Anglican Theological Review)
