Product Description

Two sentences from the great eighteenth-century English aphorist Samuel Johnson can serve as a motto to Proverbs and to this commentary. "Men more frequently require to be reminded than informed." The book of Proverbs does not primarily provide information; its instructions are remarkably empty of "content" and its maxims, when rephrased, are often trite. Rather, it informs by giving its readers a perspective. To quote Johnson on the achievement of Alexander Pope: "New things are made familiar, and familiar things are made new." Proverbs is about vision and action. From the Preface
