The book of Proverbs is a collection of sayings, poems, and "life's little instructions." Wrestling with the values of things such as creation, livelihood, or moral character, Proverbs exhorts its readers to seek the higher ideals--knowledge, discipline, piety, and order--and offers guidance on how to live in harmony with God, others, and oneself.
Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.
Edward JordanPocatello, ID2 Stars Out Of 5Too much scholarship, too little meatMarch 22, 2013Edward JordanPocatello, IDQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2I have several volumes of this commentary series/set. If someone has no background in the concept and styles of wisdom literature of the Bible, this is probably a good book for them. I was hoping to find verse by verse insights, i.e. commentary.
For my purposes this didn't meet my needs.
