Ray Ortlund helps you love the book of Proverbs,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Proverbs (Preaching the Word) (Hardcover)
This is currently my favourite commentary on Proverbs, and, reading it, I felt that Ray Ortlund was truly excited about the book. There is nothing stuffy about it - it's just warm and accessible. The introduction is excellent, and helps the reader to get excited about reading it too - and most importantly, helps us know what to do with Proverbs, and what it means to take it to heart. He gives very helpful guidance for how to get into the mindset of Proverbs, and Wisdom in general.
My only disappointment was that the end wasn't as helpful as the beginning! There is lots of material on chapters 1-9, but very little on the rest - and hardly anything at all on chapter 31, which is such an important part of the book.
What is included, however, is very good!
