The articulations of poverty in the Old Testament book of Proverbs seem to contradict the very essence of the life setting of African society, says Kimilike (Old Testament and Hebrew, Tumaini U., Tanzania). For Africans, he explains, life is lived holistically, with all its dynamics as one integrated whole. He assesses Western interpretations of poverty and surveys the traditional African proverbial wisdom on poverty as background, then sets out his transformational hermeneutic.
