    Ecclesiastes/Lamentations by Stephen J. Bennett is an insightful scholarly commentary on the books of Ecclesiastes and Lamentations. Bennett helps the reader understand the deeper themes and interpretations of the respective books while bringing the applications of these ancient texts into today's world. Bennett sets out to "present a viable (and hopefully helpful) interpretation of Ecclesiastes, while also including some of the diversity of interpretation that has gone before." Dr. Bennett does just that. The section on Lamentations is extremely rich with information and full of impactful and relevant interpretation. This is an excellent work.

    The theological themes are clearly defined and Bennett gives much insight to the text. He makes scholarly arguments that place the respective scriptures in their proper time periods and audience through the use of vocabulary and language; he addresses occasion and purpose; social and cultural issues; textual history and composition in a most impressive way. The book lends itself to the reader as a treasure trove as these wisdom books are not always easy to interpret.
