BOOK REVIEW: RICHARD BELCHER JR. FINDING FAVOUR IN THE SIGHT OF GOD: A THEOLOGY OF WISDOM LITERATURE

by JEONG KOO JEON in Vol. 5 No. 1 / Apr 2019



Richard Belcher Jr. is Professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. Belcher engages in scholarly discussions while he demonstrates the Christocentric nature of wisdom literature, providing pastoral and practical insight and implications. The book has a brief “Series Preface” by D. A. Carson (xi-xii) and an “Author’s Preface” (xiii-xiv). It starts with a journey and a question about “the problem of wisdom literature in Old Testament theology” in chapter 1 and is followed by ten chapters. The author ends the book with a bibliography, which is a valuable resource for the study of wisdom literature, and an index of authors and an index of Scripture (213–42).
