"Tremper Longman's commentary on Ecclesiastes is a welcome addition to the NICOT series and a solid contribution to the elusive field of wisdom in ancient Israel. Longman exhibits his literary and theological sensitivities in a very accessible style."
"An indispensable resource for those wishing to understand the intricacies of the original text of Ecclesiastes."
"An outstanding contribution to studies on Ecclesiastes."
"On the whole, Longman has provided an up-to-date, conversant and provocative commentary on the ever-difficult words of Qohelet."
The Bible Today
"Scholars and serious students of the Bible will find this an important resource."
Daniel I. Block
"This commentary goes a long way in solving the riddle that is the book of Ecclesiastes. . . Will be highly treasured by those who have opportunity to teach and preach the message of Ecclesiastes."
"Longman offers a provocative genre- and structure-based explanation for the divergent perspectives expressed within the book of Ecclesiastes. His thorough exposition of Qohelet's 'meaningless' search for meaning and of the canonical book's final critique of skepticism ultimately points readers toward Jesus Christ, whose death and resurrection have restored meaning to life 'under the sun."
About the Author
Top customer reviews
A couple reviewers have disingenuously slammed this commentary and its author. That is unfortunate. Longman is a scholar, a skilled writer, and most importantly a follower of Christ. For those who claim Longman has a low view of Scripture (reviewer Jeffrey W. Brannen states that "He adopts a very pessimistic view of Ecclesiastes" which lead me to believe he did not really read the commentary) or that he is unorthodox (reviewer William A. Mullins, you may want to look up "orthodoxy" in a dictionary, because your flippant use of this word is completely inappropriate). CUSTOMERS PLEASE AVOID THESE TWO REVIEWS MENTIONED ABOVE - THEY ARE UNEDUCATED AND UNHELPFUL.
