Comic Vision of Self-Government begins with the political ideas of Adam Smith, Edmund Burke, and Paul Johnson and relates them to narrative examples from wisdom literature. Both books credit Wisdom (why not personify her, as the Bible does) for helping a teacher to survivein the classroom and as a husband and parent. Proverbs 8 begins, "Does Not Wisdom Call Out?" She does indeed, and it's usually when we're most in need of her. Comedy outlines a basic form of government. Because it's non-sectarian, it brings people together.
