The Universal Appeal of Wisdom Literature

“One might read the Pentateuch and see only a faint shadow of himself reflected there. The historical books may overwhelm him with facts and events. The Prophets, by some mere chance, may pass him by with their deep convictions and concerns about their own societies and world. But the poetic books will find him wherever he is.”

C. Hassell Bullock, An Introduction to the Old Testament Poetic Books, 20.
