Brueggemann Quote on the Wisdom Traditions

I am still reading through Brueggeman’s An Unsettling God: The Heart of the Hebrew Bible.  I will probably finish tomorrow, but I’ve been posting some quotes from the book I have thought noteworthy along the way (see HERE and HERE).  I may post a more substantial review if I have the time (doubtful with thesis work).  At any rate, I thought this was another quotable line on the wisdom traditions:

… the wisdom traditions make clear that obedience is not slavish, fearful conformity to rules and laws (from CH3 – again no page numbers as I’m reading on my Kindle).
