Opis: The Book of Wisdom - Goodrick A. T. S.
Excerpt from The Book of Wisdom: With Introduction and Notes
'When will the learned man appear,' asks Harnack, speaking of the Apocrypha, 'who will at length throw light upon these writings' The answer, so far as concerns the Book of Wisdom, is 'Never.' No learned man will ever be able to explain the mind of an author who did not know it himself. Such attempts have been made in respect of modern writers, and the result has been unsatisfactory. With regard to the 'Wisdom of Solomon,' the time of theories is past. They must still be chronicled, but they are never final. All that remains is to secure a rational exegesis, for which much has yet to be done.
For such exegesis Grimm's admirable Commentary must always be the foundation. For the summary of the views of previous critics, for the collection of parallel and illuminative passages, and for rational explanation of difficulties, the work stands by itself. Yet it has its faults. Far too little attention is paid to the last chapters of the book, which are indeed generally neglected as of little philosophical interest.
