In this revised edition of her 2011 title, Swedish archbishop Antje Jackelén abides by one driving tenet, taken from the First Letter to John: God is greater. In a time of rising political tension, Jackelén proposes a path forward: If we believe that God is greater--greater than our differences, our conflicts, and our own understanding--then we create space for communities of varying beliefs to find greater meaning and greater good, together.

The book of Proverbs is more than the sum of its parts. Even if some proverbs could be older, the overall composition stems from the late Persian or early Hellenistic period. By introducing the scribal student to the foundations of sapiential knowledge and its critical reflection, the book of Proverbs comes close to the critical wisdom of Job and Qohelet. In addition to a detailed exegesis of the biblical text, this commentary presents new parallels from Egyptian wisdom literature.
