Reviews - What do customers think about Proverbs (Daily Study Bible Series)?
An Excellent Commentary for the Layman Jun 29, 2009
Kenneth Aitken's commentary is part of the Daily Bible Study Series begun by William Barclay. Aitken continues the accessible study atmosphere which is the Barclay trademark with this Old Testament volume. Rather than walk through Provebs verse by verse, Aitken divides the book into two parts. The first part looks at Proverbs 1:1 through Proverbs 9:18 focusing on the "Teacher" who has compiled these wise sayings and what he hopes to impart to his student. The second part is organized by themes and connects assorted passages scattered throughout Proverbs into essays which connect and apply these wise sayings. This method is very helpful for those who may be confused by the apparent lack of organization in Proverbs. You can find more scholarly approaches to Proverbs, but they are not always helpful. This commentary will prove to be invaluable if you are just beginning to study Proverbs further and more deeply, or if you are leading a Bible Study on the Book of Proverbs and need a structue with which to approach to your lessons.
