Review of Uusimäki, Turning Proverbs towards Torah

ANCIENT JEW REVIEW: Turning Torah Towards Proverbs: 4Q525 in Late Second Temple Perspective (Carson Bay).
Elisa Uusimäki, Turning Proverbs towards Torah: an Analysis of 4Q525. Studies on the Texts of the Desert of Judah 117. Leiden: Brill, 2015.
This work constitutes a robust study of a text which, it turns out, is quite important among the Qumran material due to what it can tell us about wisdom and torah as generic and intellectual categories among the Scrolls and within late Second Temple Judaism.
