Overview

Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Hebrew transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

The authors help the reader understand Hebrew thought expressed in wisdom literature and poetry. Murphy brings greater clarity to Proverbs via literary insight and intrabook connections. Huwiler sets Ecclesiastes in the larger biblical context and is a reliable guide through this consideration of existence and meaning. He explores the rich imagery of Song of Songs, a celebration of the goodness of human sexuality and love.

Roland E. Murphy, O. Carm., contributed the commentary on Proverbs. He was the George Washington Ivey Emeritus Professor at Duke University.

Elizabeth Huwiler contributed the commentary on Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs. She was professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia.
