The New American Commentary is based on the inerrancy of Scripture, focuses on the intrinsic theological and exegetical concerns of each Biblical book, and engages the range of issues raised in contemporary Biblical scholarship. Drawing on the skills and insight of over forty Bible scholars, the New American Commentary brings together scholarship and piety to produce a tool that enhances and supports the life of the church.
Highlights of This Volume
The Old Testament wisdom books deserve more attention than Christians usually give them. In the context of growing ethical chaos in modern society, we need to look afresh at the timeless principles of godly living found in these books. Dealing with practical issues like death, politics, business, marriage, and sex, they furnish the student and preacher of the Bible with essential guidance for life in a sin-sick world. Dr. Garrett side-steps none of the student’s difficult questions as he provides a careful analysis and insightful application from these stimulating and challenging books.
