Students of the Bible cannot go wrong in investing in Bruce Waltke's two volume commentary on The Book of Proverbs. First, Dr. Waltke is a suberb scholar of the Hebrew language. Each passage is freshly translated by the author - this is not a recopied translation from a translation you can buy at a book store. Each translated passage is followed by translation notes. Second, Dr. Waltke has a warm spirituality which is conveyed on every page of this commentary. Third, the commentary can be used by Bible students who have not studied the Hebrew Language. Obviously, a person who has studied biblical Hebrew would gain more from the text, however, it is not necessary for a reader to have a knowledge of the language to benefit greatly from this text. Fourth, this commentary is fruit of years of teaching the Book of Proverbs to seminary students. Clearly, Dr. Waltke loves The Book of the Proverbs! Fourth, very few Bible commentaries lend themselves to devotional reading. Dr. Waltke has written a book which any person who wishes to deepen their understanding of Old Testament wisdom literature would benefit. More than this, anyone who wishes to have his or heart warmed by this ancient wisdom will find this available through reading Dr. Waltke's two volume commentary on The Book of Proverbs.

I've never seen such an in depth treatment of the book of Proverbs from a rock solid evangelical perspective. Dr. Waltke is one of the greatest (reformed) scholars today. The 25 plus years he put into making these is abundantly evident when you read them. I cannot put into words how much these books will change your life and ministry - they are dynamite!

This Commentary is the conservative commentary to own for study of Proverbs. Waltke demonstrates the life pursuit and love of the book through careful and extensive detail of each verse. The introductory notes provide the proper framework to engage Proverbs and the commentary.

This work gives detailed translation of the very first order to the last half of this Biblical text which puzzles many. Dr Waltke's work provides amazing insights into what are often difficult passages. He brilliantly draws together texts from various sections of Proverbs that deal with the same subject, illuminating and adding to our understanding.

If you buy one commentary on the Proverbs, this is probably the one you should get. Very thorough in scope! Vintage Bruce Waltke.

A superb exposition of Proverbs, and how to understand and apply this timeless wisdom. A privilege to read. A must for the library of the serious student of the Bible.

Had to read this book for my Proverbs class, and I very much enjoyed the book. Will be looking forward to purchasing the rest of the set!

I purchased this Book for a calls I am taking for a Doctor of Ministries program. For that kind of study or for a Pastor/Teacher that is looking for well researched indepth information and analysis this Book is one of the very best. If you are looking for an easy read this is not the Book. This is a commentary and as such has lots of Hebrew and technical terms. If you do read it take your time and look uo the footnotes and cross references
