Everyone knows the Israelites in the Old Testament were supposed to follow the Law (Hebrew torah) of God given by Moses as their way of salvation. But what were the Gentiles supposed to do? Just suffer? Surprisingly, the Old Testament has an entire collection of teaching (Heb. torah, also) for Gentiles as well as Israelites: it's called the Wisdom Literature.
These books teach God's way to live for anyone, living anywhere: Switzerland, Sweden, Swaziland or Svalbard. With his unique blend of passion and playfulness, Dr. Bergsma teaches his way through Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Job, Wisdom and Sirach, showing why these books are as meaningful as ever for Catholics today.
