Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Animal Imagery in the Book of Proverbs contains the table of contents, preface, and abbreviations and short references. Any treatment of the figurative and symbolic function of animal imagery in biblical literature requires special attention to its contextual meaning and cultural evaluation. The book aims to demonstrate how this is particularly true of the Book of Proverbs, in which faunal imageries serve as a didactic means for delving into the more obvious truths of human behavior.

Keywords: animal imagery; Book of Proverbs; human behavior
