Product Description

On one hand, Proverbs is perfectly straightforward—a collection of short statements on how to live wisely and well. On the other, the advice of Proverbs, written millennia ago, can seem disconnected from the realities of life today.

John Goldingay’s fresh commentary untangles Proverbs with an eye toward Christian formation. Examining the text in English, Goldingay explains each verse in its original context without getting bogged down in technical detail. The commentary centers theological insights beneficial to preaching and pastoral work.

The wisdom of Proverbs can’t be reduced to platitudes. It requires something of the reader: thought, reflection, and openness to the Lord. The Commentaries for Christian Formation Proverbs guides us in the journey of faith seeking understanding.

Editorial Reviews

 "John Goldingay writes with characteristic verve, clarity, and readability. He not only makes accessible modern scholarly insights, but also utilizes the resources of classic Christian and Jewish interpretation. The wider implications of the biblical text for thought and life today are consistently developed. Here is wisdom, not only in Scripture but also in its interpretation."  
—Walter Moberly, Durham University 

"The commentary, written in accessible style, wrestles incisively with the text, delighting the reader with (among other things) many memorable and quotable turns of phrase. I warmly commend this commentary!" 
—Iain Provan, Regent College
