4.0 out of 5 stars Thorough through brevity 12 Oct 2008
By R. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
This commentary is thorough in its brevity. The nature of Ecclesiastes is in trying to understand the point of the book. I think this can be done with a thorough reading of it; as a complement to the study, Eaton does a fine job in explicating the text. I think his introduction is very good, even though in some areas I would depart from him. The strength of Eaton, in my view, is that he mentions some various views, but does not dwell on them - he stays with the text.

4.0 out of 5 stars This commentary is far from "meaningless" 14 July 2010
By Harold N. Orndorff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Eaton takes the approach that Ecclesiastes is an apologetic work of sort. His idea is that the author is trying to show what would follow if we assume that there is no God. This is an approach that I had come across long ago in my seminary days. It makes sense of a book of the Bible that many struggle to understand. This commentary does a good job of exploring this approach.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 7 May 2013
By Micah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I haven't finished the book yet, but so far it has been very good. The introduction gives you an excellent amount of information dealing with the less theological side of the book like the language, author, date, purpose, influences, vocabulary, canonicity, and a lot of other stuff. The actual commentary is also very good. For each section it gives a summary and then it goes through the section verse by verse (or a few verses at once sometimes). There are plenty of Scripture cross references for the points he makes, and footnotes on each page which provide other good expositions to consider reading.

Overall its very good, and I would definitely recommend it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Clear 5 Sep 2011
By Simon - Published on Amazon.com
This is a clear and helpful commentary.
I particularly appreciated the commentators insights (well: if they were correct) about "under the sun" and how this is particularly key to understanding what kind of view is indicated that the Teacher is taking when what he is saying is "under the sun".
5.0 out of 5 stars Tyndale series is excellent 29 Aug 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The entire Tyndale series is an excellent concise resources for either teachers or those doing their own personal study. Very helpful background and commentary.
