Reviews - What do customers think about Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs (New International Biblical Commentary)?

Disappointed  Aug 17, 2008
I am disappointed in the brevity of the work (on Ecclesiastes). If only the commentary would correspond with the introduction offered, it would be a more useful work to me. It does have exegetical remarks, but not sufficiently so. I have failed to see any sense of useful application offered by the author of the work. The book has a dedication to the Catholic and Lutheran communities they serve, but I would like to think those communities would desire more.
 
The Complete Guide to the Book of Proverbs is better.  Jan 10, 2000
Overall this is an in-depth yet very readable and interesting scholarly study of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes & Song of Songs. Most of the commentary is on Proverbs (155 pages) with 60 pages on Ecclesiastes and 70 pages on Song of Songs. There are no photos, charts or index and the translation used is the New International Version which is 16 years old (1984). A better study for Proverbs is THE COMPLETTE GUIDE TO THE BOOK OF PROVERBS by Cody Jones. It features 6 translations of Proverbs in parallel to aid understanding including more recent ones: New Living Translation (1996), New Century (1991) & New Revised Standard (1990). There are many historical drawings and photos to give you a sense of the culture of the time, an index, topical guide, maps, charts and glossary and pronunciation guide. Numerous characters from the Bible are pointed out who illustrate King Solomon's witty observations on human nature. Many of the riddles & mysteries of Proverbs are explored with surprising new answers.
