Working from the familiar King James Version, Dr. Phillips provides helpful commentary that includes detailed, expanded outlines and a summary outline a the beginning of the volume. This commentary focuses on illustrating each proverb, drawing conclusions from science, nature, fiction, personal experience and of course the Bible, making this almost a handbook of illustrations and quotations. The wisdom of Solomon is outlined, analyzed, illustrated and treated in a verse-by-verse format which is understandable and readable.
The John Phillips Commentary Series is designed to provide pastors, Sunday school teachers, and students of the Scripture with doctrinally sound interpretation that emphasizes the practical application of Bible truth.
"John Phillips writes with enthusiasm and clarity, . . . cutting through the confusion and heretical dangers associated with Bible interpretation." --"Moody" magazine
