The Wisdom literature of the Hebrew canon remains the most liturgically usable, if not the most widely misunderstood, portion of Scripture. This is the theme of the February 2007 Tabletalk. In an effort to help our readers learn how to better read this literature, this issue will attempt to focus on the main point and purpose of each book as integral to the canon as well as natural outflows of the Pentateuch and history books. This issue is not, however, intended to be a treatise on biblical literature. While we do wish to heighten the church’s awareness on how to read such texts, we desire to do it through a careful, yet approachable, analysis of how new covenant believers may interpret, use, and respond to the Wisdom books of Sacred Writ.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Jay Adams, Robert Rothwell, Harry L. Reeder, Benjamin Shaw, R.C. Sproul Jr., Gene Edward Veith. Tabletalk features articles about topics central to the Christian faith and daily, in-depth Bible studies.
Since Genesis has such a prominent place in history, the 2007 Bible studies continue from 2006 with Part 2 of this book.
