Divine Judgement and Divine Benevolence in the Book of Wisdom
By Moyna McGlynn
J. C. B. Mohr
$97.50 paper original
Scholarly interest in the apocryphal Book of Wisdom has grown over the last fifty
years. This book examines the interwoven themes of divine judgment and divine
benevolence as they are presented in the text of Wisdom. The full extent and interplay
between these themes is only revealed by a literary reading of the whole text.
This reading examines the poetic techniques, structures, vocabulary, verbal repetitions,
and the questions the author has employed to provide a framework for a theology
of justice and mercy.
