Excellent book, well worth the money. I've had mine for 8 years now and treasure it.
Charles Bridges provides sound insight into the book of Proverbs.
Sure to touch the heart many times in many ways. Just a little study of this book often produces rich results. Be sure to look up the scripture references. Be prepared to grow in wisdom and knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs by Charles Bridges provides an excellent model for Christ-centered exposition of the text of Proverbs, useful for practical, Christ-centered family worship, soul-searching personal devotions and for jump-starting preparations or helping on the practical applications of topical messages. It is one of the most moving and useful biblical commentaries I have ever read. I have always thought Bridges' definition of "the fear of the Lord" was the best I heard and worth the price of the book. I think every Christian home should have one. See also his commentary on Psalm 119 and his work on the Christian Ministry.
