Davis takes seriously the fact that these three books are poetry - and practical poetry at that. That is, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs aim to generate reflection on both the most ordinary and the most far-reaching experiences of life: birth and death, poverty and wealth, education and work, grief and joy, human love and love of God. To the Israelite sages, the sacred and secular were not separate realms of experience and concern. And these books, as wisdom literature, can speak with particular power to the spiritual needs of our highly secularized age.
