Biblical wisdom literature engages with a surprisingly modern set of concerns, including creation, ecology, feminine faces of God, sexuality, money, and responsibility. Using a variety of text-centered and reader-centered interpretive techniques, we will explore the lessons and questions of Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, and Ben Sirach.
