According to Jewish tradition, King Solomon personally authored three books of the Bible- the Book of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs- with all three being considered classic examples of Wisdom Literature (a genre of literature common in the Ancient Near East characterized by sayings of wisdom intended to insight and wisdom about nature and reality) whose life lessons and guiding examples have long been an inspiration to many. A central figure in the three primary Abrahamic faiths- Judaism, Christianity and Islam- the influence of Solomon to this day touches the lives of over 54% of the worlds population.
