No book of the Bible gives the Christian more practical advice than Proverbs. It covers personal issues such as ambition, anxiety, fear, money; family matters such as marriage, parenting, discipline and education; social questions like neighbourliness, friendship, disputes and litigation; and even politics, from both the ruler's and citizen's point of view.
The revolutionary method employed in this commentary combines two different approaches. First, the author covers the text verse-by-verse. Second, the author approaches the text by examining its thematic style. Most modern commentaries on Proverbs don't cover every verse, but this one does. Most other commentaries don't show the thematic nature of the book of Proverbs, this one does.
