Book Synopsis
What is wisdom? How does one acquire it? What is the cost? Ja-el tells us the story of his life as a scribe in King Solomon's palace. Sold as a boy into slavery by bandits to Solomon's most favored concubine, Ja-el eventually becomes a trusted personal scribe to the king, devoted to helping Solomon collect and record the Wisdom Scrolls. He is also commanded by Solomon to explore the nature of the various gods worshipped in ancient Canaan and Israel. In his secret scrolls, Ja-el bears witness to the reign of Solomon from its early years until its end, as well as to the ambitions of those around him. In his pursuit of wisdom for himself, he battles the common human frailties and betrayals that lead him to seek fulfillment in the archetypal forces represented by the ancient gods.
