theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent book on how to read and properly interpret and apply the book of Proverbs!June 17, 2018theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Many times I have listened to Christians quote verses out of the book of Proverbs in ways that don't really keep it in context or in some cases, use the name-it-and-claim-it approach expecting things to happen in a certain manner. Tremper Longman III did a very nice job of presenting the book of Proverbs in a way that helps readers of Proverbs to get a solid understanding of how to correctly interpret and apply the book of Proverbs to their lives.
I conducted a class at our church on how to study the Bible on your own using the Inductive Bible Study Method and this book really follows that concept nicely. In fact, I would recommend this book very highly for anyone that is interested in being able to correctly interpret and apply the book of Proverbs to their lives.
I really liked how the author brought other books of the Bible into play to present similar themes and ideas in relation to the book of Proverbs. I appreciated the sections in each chapter for Further Reflection and also For Further Reading. I think many will find these aspects very helpful as additional resources and learning.
This book does a good job to help people understand how important the culture and audience (just for two examples) play a critical role in knowing how to properly interpret Scripture. I felt that this book was easy to follow and hard to put down.
I have come across some reviews where people have commented that this book is too basic, while others have commented that this is geared more toward Bible students and was difficult for them to understand. I'm not quite seeing either side of these comments and tend to not fall into either of these extremes as I feel that this book is written very well and does help readers gain a more solid understanding of the book of Proverbs.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for this review from IVP and all opinions are my own.
