This book explores issues of current interest in supervisor training. In particular, the range of approaches that authors represent reveals the impact of assumptions on curriculum design and thus on future work. Volume two enables six authors from different theoretical orientations to declare and demonstrate what their courses offer participants from their own theoretical orientation, and how each course fits participants to work with supervisees trained in other approaches.

First, Reinhard Müller (2013) finds a contrast between Joseph and Solomon (who
both receive wisdom from God) and the judges ... Indeed, both Müller and Witte
posit interactions between different sorts of Law and different kinds of Wisdom.

This collection of leading scholars presents reflections on both wisdom as a general concept throughout history and cultures, as well as the contested nature of the category of Wisdom Literature. The first half of the collection explores wisdom more generally with essays on its relationship to skill, epistemology, virtue, theology, and order. Wisdom is examined in a number of different contexts, such as historically in the Hebrew Bible and its related cultures, in Egypt and Mesopotamia, as well as in Patristic and Rabbinic interpretation. Additionally, wisdom is examined in its continuing relevance in Islamic, Jewish, and Christian thought, as well as from feminist, environmental, and other contextual perspectives. The second half of the volume considers "Wisdom Literature" as a category. Scholars address its relation to the Solomonic Collection, its social setting, literary genres, chronological development, and theology. Wisdom Literature's relation to other biblical literature (law, history, prophecy, apocalyptic, and the broad question of "Wisdom influence") is then discussed before separate chapters on the texts commonly associated with the category. Contributors take a variety of approaches to the current debates surrounding the viability and value of Wisdom Literature as a category and its proper relationship to the concept of wisdom in the Hebrew Bible. Though the organization of the volume highlights the independence of wisdom as concept from "Wisdom Literature" as a category, seeking to counter the lack of attention given to this question in the traditional approach, the inclusion of both topics together in the same volume reflects their continued interconnection. As such, this handbook both represents the current state of Wisdom scholarship and sets the stage for future developments.

Solomon is the figurehead who holds the family of 'wisdom' texts together. Intertextuality places fresh texts alongside the Solomonic corpus to show how Solomon is the lynch-pin that holds 'wisdom' in its core texts and wider influence together.
