Product Description

In this commentary on Proverbs, Murphy pays particular attention to parallelism in the book of Proverbs. Professor Murphy examines parallelism in Proverbs, a collection of generations of wisdom poems, symbolism, theology, and anthropology. Professor Huwiler enhances your appreciation of Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs through her careful exposition of themes and images in two biblical books devoted to such human exploration and experience.

The Understanding the Bible Commentary Series helps any reader navigate the strange and sometimes intimidating literary terrain of the Bible. These accessible volumes break down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. The contributors tackle the task of interpretation using the full range of critical methodologies and practices, yet they do so as people of faith who hold the text in the highest regard. Pastors, teachers, and lay people alike will cherish the easily understandable truth found in this commentary series.
