Tremendous Book. As with most things books, there were one or two areas where I'm not totally in agreement with the author. But on the whole I found it helpful and instructive. Particularly found the sections on Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs helpful. Good stuff.

Excellent introduction to all aspects of OT Poetry and Wisdom. It's all great, but the highlight of the book for me is the author's reverent treatment of Song of Songs, including his highly influential presentation of the book from a literal perspective where the lovers are a poor shepherd and a poor shepherdess/vine dresser, while Solomon is a dark force in the book. Agree or not, this is one of the definitive presentations of this perspective.
