by Daniel Estes

In this work, Daniel Estes introduces students to the Old Testament poetical books--Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs. Each chapter explores one of the five poetical books. Estes first summarizes some of the book's key issues. He then devotes the main portion of the chapter to an exposition of the book, interacting with major commentaries and recent studies. Each chapter concludes with an extensive bibliography, allowing for further exploration. Following in the tradition of Handbook on the Pentateuch (over sixty thousand copies sold), this valuable resource will help pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and Bible study leaders better understand the overall flow of each poetical book.

I ordered this for a college course I am taking but honestly, this book is a great starting book for anyone wanting to learn more about the Bible. This only goes through five books but it does a really good job of giving the history, authorship, language, character breakdown, etc. It also gives a good break down of the chapters. I fully intend on keeping this for future studies, as well as buying other books by the same publishers.
Required reading for seminary students. It is sure to become part of their regular reading for a lifetime of study and living.
This book gave many different ideas about the wisdom books and psalms concerning for instance author, date, historical background etc. Very useful if you want to have more information than just a bit that is superficial
I purchased for class studies.
The book is a very good commentary. It helps me understand the books that are difficult to read, like the Jobs. It gives a good summary of each chapter of the Book of Jobs and the quotes of other commentaries of are of good choices.
Great product and great seller!
Well written and very detailed. This book walks verse by verse through the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs. Reiterates just enough for solid understanding of the text covered.
Reading this book will enhance your knowledge on the wisdom and the psalms where you had speculations. Brings you closer!
