Publishers Description

The book of Proverbs is a collection of sayings, poems, and "life's little instructions." Wrestling with the values of things such as creation, livelihood, or moral character, Proverbs exhorts its readers to seek the higher ideals--knowledge, discipline, piety, and order--and offers guidance on how to live in harmony with God, others, and oneself.

Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Review of "Proverbs" by Perdue in Interpretation Series  Aug 18, 2006
The subtitle for the individual volumes in the Interpretation series of commentaries is, "A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching." The volumes I have read do an excellent job of providing basic discussion on the meaning and interpretation of the biblical text and then offering suggestions for how to teach or preach that text to a contemporary audience.

The volume on Proverbs is more concerned with discussing historical issues involving the proverbs. How were they collected? How did they make it into the book of Proverbs? When were they written? What was the social and political concerns of the day? This discussion is often elucidating and helpful. But, I think the commentary is weak in two areas.

One, there is not much discussion of individual proverbs and what they might mean today.

Two, there is not much direction in how to teach or preach the message of the proverbs today.

If you want historical background of the proverbs, buy this book. If you want interpretative discussion and teaching/preaching direction, look instead to Dave Bland's commentary (College Press, 1 vol), Murphy's (Word, 1 vol) or Waltke's (Eerdman's, 2 vols). (See my reviews on each of these).
