How To Be Wiser Than Solomon is a biography of King Solomon. It teaches you to be wiser than Solomon. It also questions the wisdom of some modern scholars of archeology and Biblical scholars of the Old Testament, both learned Jewish scholars and learned Christian scholars. These scholars, most of whom contend that Solomon did not write Ecclesiastes, believe that the stories of David and Solomon in the Old Testament might have been a hoax by Levitical priests to maintain control over the Jewish people. How To Be Wiser Than Solomon explains that Ecclesiastes represents Solomon’s wisdom “under the sun.” My own poem Ecclesiastes: A Modern Sequel describes how to be wiser “above the sun.” Finally, this book gives a unique insight into Solomon’s classic Song of Solomon. Scholars find the poem confusing. Once you understand that Solomon abandoned his true love Abishag to marry Pharaoh’s daughter, the poem on its simplest level is an account of Solomon’s remorse for forsaking Abishag.

Aya, daughter of Zebulon of Tarsus, does not want a traditional life. Because she has always lived in the shadow of her brilliant brother, she wants to use her gifts and be something more than a wife and mother. When her traditional father insists she marry Avidan, a Torah student, she reluctantly agrees, but when Avidan leaves for Jerusalem, she seizes an opportunity to fulfill her deepest yearning, realizing she may never have another chance to do so. After moving to Jerusalem, she expects to be bored in her role as wife to a Torah student, but finds herself fascinated by her husband's studies. And when her brother Sha'ul makes a life-altering decision, she finds herself faced with a troubling question: How can she remain true to all she's been taught since infancy and still love her blasphemous brother?
