With recommendations from Charlesworth and Klauck, I presume it must be good?

Thanks for this. I actually added it to my wishlist a few hours ago, but I've now made the purchase.

I already had it and wondered how much I paid for it.  Turns out I also picked it up at 50% off....in 2007.

Lucky you (and lucky patient people today) - I paid full price in 2011. It's a good book, though, and worth the price.

Lucky me, coupon still worked today (5/17/2013 2:28pm EST).  I had been debating whether to purchase it or not, but at that price I guess I can give it a trial period of 30 days without seeing much change in my bank account...lol

Thanks for the heads up on this one!

Regarding Wisdom and 2 Mc, is it just an overview or does it go into details? I don't think I want just an overview.

I have not read the book yet, but by looking at the content it is mostly as the title of the book suggest: "Introducing the Apocrypha: Message, Context, and Significance." I'd put it in the category of Carson's & Moo's NT Introduction.

The book gives you good information to be able to know enough about the Apocrypha to teach others and learn as you go and profit from them.  Here's the outline followed in the Wisdom of Solomon section:

I. Wisdom of Solomon

A. Structure and Contents

B. Textual Transmission

C. Author, Date and Setting

D. Genre and Purpose

E. Formative Influences

F. Reinforcing Group Commitment Amidst the Tentions of Diaspora Life

G. Critique of Gentile Society

H. Universalism versus Particularism

I. The Personification of Wisdom

J. Influence

I hope this helps answer your question.

Blessings!
