Proverbs Ecclesiastes Song Of Songs

Product description

The New American Commentary series brings the best of contemporary evangelical scholarship that honors the full trustworthiness and authority of Scripture to the task of serious exegetical and theological exposition of the Word. Duane Garrett turns his keen exegetical skills to the Wisdom literature of the Old Testament. Modern scholarship has all but dismissed any Solomonic connection to Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs, and this has even been the case with some Evangelical scholars. Garrett takes a fresh look in view of new studies on the historical development of biblical Hebrew and, more importantly, in view of his own evaluation of parallels with Ancient Near Eastern wisdom literature, particularly from Egypt and Mesopotamia. He presents stimulating arguments for Solomonic authorship of Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs, as well as for Solomonic background to those portions of Proverbs ascribed to him. A discussion of the nature and development of Israelite wisdom puts his work into context. Particularly helpful is Garrett's discussion of forms and rhetorical strategies in the literature.
