With The Book of Psalms, The Five Books of Moses, The David Story and now The Wisdom Books, Robert Alter is building piece by piece a stunning body of bold Hebrew Bible translations. This latest volume encompasses The Book of Job, The Book of Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes, three works that challenge simplistic notions that the righteous will thrive. The clarity and energy of Alter's renderings give a new force to these masterworks of our spiritual and literary heritage. Editor's recommendation.
