About the Author
The works of Derek Kidner (MA, Christ's College, Cambridge) are full of the marks of both professor and pastor with his evenhanded scholarship as well as his devotional insight. These qualities have made his commentaries in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary series and The Bible Speaks Today series some of the most beloved and popular of recent decades. Kidner had a long career in both the church and the academy in England. He studied at Cambridge University and then served in the ministry for several years before becoming a senior tutor at Oak Hill Theological College. Kidner began his writing career while serving as warden of Tyndale House in Cambridge from 1964 to 1978, publishing his ninth and final book, The Message of Jeremiah, in 1987.

Every other chapter is a purely academic approach to the textual criticism of the Wisdom Literature books (as admitted by the author himself). Thus, they are easily skipped over by those without formal training. The final chapter is a summation of those academic chapters if one did desire a "Reader's Digest" version of the topics covered.
All in all, grab this if you want to approach Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes much more biblically.
