Item description for Holman Old Testament Commentary - Proverbs (Holman Old Testament Commentary #13) by Max Anders...
Overview The Book of Proverbsis one of the most widely read books of the Bible. Many Bible reading plans call for reading one chapter of Proverbseach day. Those who follow such a plan read through Proverbs12 times a year. Proverbs is a compilation of short sayings or maxims designed to present important truth in memorable form. The Hebrew word for wisdom means "skill in living." The purpose of Proverbsis to give the reader skill for living life from God's perspective, and in doing so, give the wise person greater happiness. Wisdom begins with a fear of the Lord (reverence and respect, not terror), and includes knowledge, understanding, discretion, discernment, and obedience. Proverbsis to be used to help succeeding generations be successful in life, primarily by contrasting the difference between the wise person and the fool. While there is some general overall organization to the book of Proverbs, the individual proverbs within the book are often arranged randomly. This can present a challenge when studying the book, because it is often helpful to study similar proverbs at the same time. Therefore, this commentary has rearranged all the proverbs into 31 topical studies, rather than going through the proverbs in the order they are found in the Bible.
One in a series of twenty Old Testament verse-by-verse commentary books edited by Max Anders. Includes discussion starters, teaching plan, and more. Great for lay teachers and pastors alike.
