520    Our handling of what we call biblical law veers between 
       controversy and neglect. On the one hand, controversy 
       arises when Old Testament laws seem either odd beyond 
       comprehension (not eating lobster) or positively 
       reprehensible (executing children). On the other, neglect 
       results when we consider the law obsolete, no longer 
       carrying any normative power. Even those who do attempt to
       make use of the Old Testament "law" often find it either 
       irrelevant, hopelessly laden with "thou shalt nots," or 
       simply confusing. Despite these extremes, people continue 
       to propose moral principles from these laws as "the 
       biblical view" and to garner proof texts to resolve issues
       that arise in society. The result is that both Christians 
       and skeptics regularly abuse the Torah, and its true 
       message often lies unheard. Walton and Walton offer in The
       Lost World of the Torah a restorative vision of the 
       ancient genre of instruction for wisdom that makes up a 
       significant portion of the Old Testament. In the ancient 
       Near East, order was achieved through the wisdom of those 
       who governed society. The objective of torah was to teach 
       the Israelites to be wise about the kind of order needed 
       to receive the blessings of God's favor and presence 
       within the context of the covenant. Here listeners will 
       find fresh insight on this fundamental genre of the Old 
       Testament canon.
