This volume on Proverbs has the unique feature of not approaching the Biblical text in an exclusively chronological fashion. It is primarily verse by verse, but various verses are arranged under single topics (e.g. "The Proud" or "Parental Discipline"). You will find much in Proverbs that concern matters as practical as raising children and teaching good table manners and as timely as gossip and corrupt business practices.
"Where there is no vision, the people perish." In this perceptive commentary familiar sayings from the book of Proverbs, such as this one, are seen in a new light. Kenneth T. Aitken deepens our understanding of the collection of popular sayings and folk wisdom of ancient Israel.
Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
Kenneth T. Aitken is Lecturer in Hebrew Bible at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.
