This study guide introduces students to the Book of Proverbs from the Old Testament. Zoltán Schwáb examines the book's structure and characteristics; covers the latest Biblical scholarship, including historical and interpretive issues; and considers a range of scholarly approaches including as feminist, black and disability theory. The guide encourages existential engagement with Proverbs, and uses diverse tools in order to achieve this. A special emphasis will be placed on the honesty and the 'dark side' of Proverbs, and the ambiguity and poetry of proverbs is also discussed. The form, teaching, and use of proverbs will be contrasted with comparable modern genres, such as modern aphorisms, short absurd novels, adverts and twitter messages. Finally, the guide presents a comparison with the rich heritage of African proverbs. With suggestions of further reading at the end of each chapter, this guide will be an essential accompaniment to study of the Book of Proverbs.
