Overview

The “wise” of ancient Israel were concerned primarily with the nature of goodness and the character of faith: What is “good” for humankind, and how should they live their brief lives on earth?

Although the books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes are generally regarded as two distinctly different types of works, Kathleen A. Farmer demonstrates that they belong together, each to be read in the light of the other as guides that enable and encourage us to act in life-enhancing ways which are fully in accord with the teaching of the Lord.
