IVP Academic Proverbs: Tyndale Old Testament Commentary [TOTC]

Proverbs--a book full of wisdom--and yet a book demanding all one's wisdom to understand.

Derek Kidner not only has provided a running commentary on the whole of Proverbs but has also included two helpful study aids. The first is a set of subject guides that pull together teaching scattered throughout the book. The second is a short concordance that helps locate lost sayings (in territory notoriously hard to search) and encourages further subject studies.

In short, this volume is a wise person's guide to wisdom.The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Kidner is a top-notch scholar and gifted writer. He writes from a conservative perspective. If anyone is seeking a brief, reliable, and accessible guide to the message of Proverbs, this is it. This commentary is relatively brief (probably a bit too brief). It does not attempt a detailed study of the Hebrew language, nor extensive interaction with alternative viewpoints. There are better options out there on Proverbs, but Kidner's work is still quite good.
