The Bible is a living book and the words in Wisdom bring us understanding. I say that it is living because it will manifest itself differently within each and every one of us. The Bible is about you. It is designed to tell you about yourself and answer questions that cannot be answered in any other way. This is because the Bible’s stories have prompts that you will not get comprised in one place anywhere else.
The Wisdom of Solomon (known as the Book of Wisdom in the Latin Bible tradition) is a book about wisdom—its benefits, nature, and role in ancient Israel’s history. It is more an exhortation to pursue wisdom than a collection of wise teachings (as in Proverbs, Sirach, and Ecclesiastes).
