If you are tired of commentaries that only focus on the technical aspects of Proverbs, you've found what you are looking for; however, if you want a little more exegesis than the average devotional commentary, this is your source as well. When I first picked up the book, I was skeptical about the author, but I quickly grew to appreciate his accurate analysis of the text of Proverbs. The book is a result of Dr. Steveson's life-long research on the text of Proverbs. Each section of the book has an introduction with helpful comments on the contents, structure (if any), and textual debates. The author also includes footnotes throughout the text that explain the problems with the approach of some of the liberal commentaries. The chapter summaries also contain a nice breakdown of the verses and topics covered in the chapter. Another valuable resource is the appendix which includes a wealth of topic studies on the book. I used the commentary as a day-by-day devotional as I read through the book of Proverbs one month. No doubt, both the scholar and the layman will find this book useful as a study guide or a devotional help.
Dr. Steveson also has a commentary on Psalms, A Commentary on Isaiah, and a brand new commentary on Daniel. The writer also wrote another solid book on Christ's Last Command: Resources for Success. All of these works reflect the same scholarly and practical approach used in Steveson's work on Proverbs.
