The escalating growth of our technological knowledge in the last century has been nothing short of breathtaking but has it rendered us wiser? Or godlier?
We have lost something priceless, and seem to be trying to replace it with more and more information. We need wisdom! Communications technology leaves us no rest to work things out: mostly we just react, and worry, and fail and react again. We make business decisions; ethical decisions; relationship decisions; against a continuously moving landscape that doesnt allow them to be satisfying consistent dependable.
To cope we must have wisdom! There is no better starting point than the Book of Proverbs. Its purpose is to impart wisdom to those who want it. From its pages God promises to set us on The path of life (Prov. 15:24).
You dont understand! I dont have time!
You do because, after years of painstaking study, John Kitchen has produced a work that is authoritative, comprehensive and insightful. He examines the chronology, authorship, composition, structure and context of Proverbs and does the hard work of providing crossreferences alerting the reader to rich veins running beneath the surface of Proverbs and other Biblical books.
You want wisdom to help run your life? Think you are running out of time? Then this is a priceless, timeless book that will reward your investment as you seek to gain wisdom, rather than knowledge.
"Dr. John Kitchen's commentary represents a good combination of scholarly research and practical godly admonition. It provides both the experienced biblical scholar and the beginning Bible student a very helpful resource for the study of Proverbs."
"In this commentary on Proverbs, John Kitchen combines careful attention to the text with a warm pastoral concern for his readers. He is familiar with the scholarly discussions on the book, but he avoids technical jargon as he interprets Proverbs for the life setting of the twenty-first century. His lucid exposition expertly focuses on two questions that are too often neglected: How does the message of Proverbs connect with other biblical passages? And, how does this ancient book speak in specific terms to life today? This book will prove helpful for laypeople, students, and scholars alike."
