Douglas O'Donnell writes with infectious enthusiasm about the Wisdom Literature of the Bible. At a time when many Christians wonder how these books fit in' to the rest of Scripture, O'Donnell's call to pay close attention to these books and his gripping introduction to them should be widely read. Rarely does an individual combine the precision of an exegete, the passion of a poet, and the pulse of a pastor. But Doug O'Donnell demonstrates all of these qualities in his most recent book. What is even more impressive is that O'Donnell focuses his attention on the Old Testament Wisdom Literature, one of the sections of the Bible most neglected by scholars and pastors alike. His model sermons and the hermeneutical discussions that undergird them are sure to inspire many others to follow the path that he has blazed so well.
