Proverbs - a book full of wisdom - and yet a book demanding all one's wisdom to understand.

^^Derek Kidner not only has provided a running commentary on the whole of Proverbs but has also included two helpful study aids. The first is a set of subject guides that pull together teaching scattered throughout the book. The second is a short concordance that helps locate lost sayings (in territory notoriously hard to search) and encourages further subject studies.

^^In short, this volume is a wise person's guide to wisdom.

^^The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series

.^^These commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a Structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The goal throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

Helpful introduction
3 stars By Stuart, Aug 31 2013
Kidner's commentary on Proverbs is a helpful introduction to this difficult book. The commentary has a short introduction to the various issues surrounding Proverbs; then a helpful 'subject-study' section that includes 8 themes. For example, God-man. The commentary then proceeds to a verse-by-verse engagement with the text and finally ends with a helpful short concordance of Proverbs. However, the commentary could be improved in the following ways: it's age (1964), its length, which allows for only the briefest of comments (192 pages). Compare this to the FOTB entry on Proverbs, pitched roughly to the same audience, with 432 pages. Finally, a more comprehensive concordance or index would also be beneficial. Having said that, it is a useful introduction to the Book of Proverbs.
