Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs, though entirely different books, are similar in that they provide spiritual guidance about what it means to live wisely before God. In this thorough and readable commentary, Ellen Davis points out that the writers of these books considered wisdom and the fruits of wisdom - a well-ordered life and a peaceful mind - to be within the grasp of all those wholeheartedly desiring it. From the confident "wise dealing" instructions in Proverbs, to the world-weariness of Ecclesiastes, to the exuberance of the Song of Songs, these books take the reader through the full range of human emotion. Their words cause one to reflect on both the ordinary and the extraordinary experiences of life: birth and death, poverty and wealth, education and work, grief and joy, human love and love of God. Though books of ancient wisdom, they continue to speak with particular power to the spiritual needs of our highly secularized age.
These books of the Bible, despite their differences, all treat the phenomenon of what it means to live wisely before God. In this readable commentary, Ellen Davis points out that the writers of these books considered wisdom--and the fruits of wisdom, a well-ordered life and a peaceful mind--to be within the grasp of anyone wholeheartedly desiring it.
