Monotheism and Creation in Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes

Abstract: Katharine Dell’s paper considers the nature of the monotheism found in the three wisdom books Proverbs: Job and Ecclesiastes. Noting how monotheism in relation to wisdom literature has often been omitted from wider debates about Israelite monotheism, her article looks at scholarly discussions from past centuries as well as our own, providing a range of opinions, and contends that in all three books, God’s monotheistic character does emerge and that Woman Wisdom is not a threat to the one creator God.
