Product Description

The New American Commentary series brings the best of contemporary evangelical scholarship that honors the full trustworthiness and authority of Scripture to the task of serious exegetical and theological exposition of the Word. It combines scholarship and piety to offer a life-enhancing and life-supporting commentary for the whole church.

In this volume, Dale Garrett turns his keen exegetical skills to the wisdom literature of the Old Testament. Although modern scholarship (including some evangelical scholarship) has all but dismissed any Solomonic connection to Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs, Garrett affirms the Solomonic connection inherent in all three. He also takes a fresh look at the wisdom literature in view of new studies on the historical development of biblical Hebrew and, more importantly, in view of his own evaluations of parallels with Ancient Near Eastern wisdom literature, particularly from Egypt and Mesopotamia. He presents stimulating arguments for Solomonic authorship of Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs, as well as for Solomonic background to those portions of Proverbs ascribed to him. A discussion of the nature and development of Israelite wisdom puts his work into context. Particularly helpful is Garrett's discussion of forms and rhetorical strategies in the wisdom literature.

Overview of the New American Commentary (NAC):
  • Theologically conservative (Evangelical)
  • Semi-technical (use of Greek and Hebrew in the footnotes)
  • Based on the New International Version (NIV), but authors are free to use their own translations when applicable
  • Designed for pastors, teachers and students
Features of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, by Duane Garrett:
  • A verse-by-verse exposition of the biblical wisdom literature
  • An integrated commentary which assumes Solomonic influence or authorship for Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs
  • A practical application of the timeless principles for godly living seen in the wisdom literature
  • A detailed analysis of the literary strategies of each book, and how this impacts their meaning and application

    Heres the pastors choice for the three challenging books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon. In near 450 pages respected scholar Duane Garrett gives what most want: a succinct, weighty, and helpful commentary on these books that will likely be preached from less than many others.

    Garrett begins with an Introduction on Proverbs. He starts with a general discussion of Wisdom in the Ancient Near East and transitions into Israelite Wisdom. He provides a lengthy section describing all the proverb classifications scholars have come up with. That subject is more interesting to scholars than pastors, but he explains it well. He also covers the varying opinions on structure. In discussing authorship and date, he wades through the varying conclusions to reach conservative conclusions.

    The commentary is good, but he spends time defining classification of every proverb. My only criticism of this book is that the commentary on Proverbs needs to be about 25% longer if a revision is ever done.

    Garrett does a fine Introduction on Ecclesiastes as well. Since so few scholars believe Solomon could have written it, he has a lot to wade through to reach conservative conclusions. This was my favorite Introduction of the three. He sees an evangelistic purpose to the book.

    The commentary on Ecclesiastes is well done and especially enlightening.

    He turns out another careful Introduction on the Song. I cant agree with his conclusion that its only a discussion of human love, but he lays out the differing viewpoints well. The other introductory issues are laid out with equal thoroughness. Garrett went on to write a large, major exegetical commentary on the Song in WBC. The commentary here is once again quite helpful.

    This book is the perfect volume for these three books for pastors or teachers. I highly recommend it!

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
