The Book of Proverbs may be even more interesting than you thought. More than just a random collection of some of the world's best proverbs-in this commentary I am suggesting answers to the three thousand year old riddle of its literary structure, and progressive theme-opening a larger window on the economic, social, religious, and political philosophy taught by its author, King Solomon-called by many the wisest man who ever lived.
