Respected Old Testament scholar Craig Bartholomew, coauthor of the well-received "Drama of Scripture," provides a careful exegetical reading of Ecclesiastes in this latest addition to the Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms series. Along with helpful translation and commentary, "Ecclesiastes" considers the theological implications of the text and its literary, historical, and grammatical dimensions. Footnotes deal with many of the technical matters, allowing readers of varying levels of interest and training to read and profit from the commentary and to engage the biblical text at an appropriate level. Pastors, teachers, and all serious students of the Bible will find here an accessible commentary that will serve as an excellent resource for their study.
