Poetry and Writings

The 5 Books of POETRY or WRITINGS

Job

Psalms

Proverbs

Ecclesiastes

Song of Solomon

These books deal with the questions of ‘how wisdom can be found’. Job is probably the oldest booking the Bible and focuses on the questions why does God allow suffering? The Psalms are poems addressing God in times of persecution and suffering, love and praise. These writings also give a moral code and guidance of how to love each other and how God relates to the world, through love and action.
