The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Proverbs & Ecclesiastes, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church--providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups--and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.

"Treier's new commentary is a rare gift: rich theological reflection and wisdom from and on Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. It fills a serious gap in much Christian thought and practice by providing a biblically based creation theology that addresses ordinary human life in its God-related richness and complexity. Last but not least, it is readable and absorbing. May Treier's tribe increase!"--Raymond C. Van Leeuwen, professor of biblical studies, Eastern University

Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

"The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible is a grand experiment in theological hermeneutics. . . . [Risto] Saarinen's commentary [The Pastoral Epistles with Philemon & Jude] is a lively interplay of theological reflection and biblical exegesis. . . . The commentary may whet readers' appetites for further reading in contemporary phenomenology and theology of the gift."--Clint Schnekloth, Word & World

"[In Matthew, Stanley] Hauerwas is as delightfully irascible and hard-hitting as ever. . . . He draws on theologians like Barth, Augustine, Origen, and especially Bonhoeffer, whom he quotes and paraphrases often, as well as New Testament scholars and eclectic writers like Wendell Berry. Insightful and provocative, Hauerwas adds a valuable theological perspective to the Gospel of Matthew."--Publishers Weekly
