Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 311024764X, Hardcover)

"The Wisdom of Solomon 10" is a unique passage among Jewish wisdom texts since it both presents personified divine Wisdom (i.e., Lady Wisdom) as acting directly in early Israelite history and explicitly categorizes key biblical figures as either righteous or unrighteous. Through the use of historical and literary criticism, this study especially focuses on how "Wisdom 10" has a distinct literary genre and form. Furthermore, it investigates the way that the book's author (i.e., Pseudo-Solomon) reinterprets well-known figures and events of the Pentateuch for his Jewish Alexandrian audience in the Greco-Roman era.
