In this book, R. N. Whybray presents his classic exposition on the book of Proverbs. Readable yet academic, he outlines the entire book of Proverbs, with the purpose of tracing the development of composition. Much attention is given to the intended audience, the many authors of the book, and purpose of the book itself. Whybray provides helpful observations on the overall style and history of Proverbs, going chapter-by-chapter. In the final chapter, he discusses the actual process of how the book was put together.
