'. . . the book must be highly commended both to Biblical and non-Biblical scholars and students. It opens up an area of study that is notably fresh and different from what has frequently passed for Biblical theology, and yet it firmly sets out to uncover the very roots of theological thinking in the Bible. It is very readable and has been very ably translated by Dr. J. D. Martin' (R. E. Clements in The Expository Times).
'In this great and notable volume the most original mind of OT scholarship in this last generation, G. von Rad, offers his interpretation of Israel's wisdom . . . this book is a "must" for every minister and man who feels himself caught in a secular and apparently materialistic society' (G. Henton Davies in The Baptist Times).
This is a last and precious word and those who are familiar with von Rad's earlier work on Old Testament Wisdom will discern the continuity with his earlier positions and also the development which they have undergone' (William McKane in Theology).
Until his death, Gerhard von Rad was Professor of Old Testament in the University of Heidelberg.
