Sensitive to both literary form and theological content, Derek Kidner introduces Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes, explaining their basic character and internal structure.  He also summarizes and evaluates the wealth of modern criticism focused on each book.  Looking at all three books together, Kidner shows how their many voices compare, contrast and ultimately give a unified view of life.  Kidner extends his analysis to include Ecclesiasticus and The Wisdom of Solomon from the Apocrypha, and he reprints excerpts from non-Israelite works that parallel the three major looks treated.
