This illuminating commentary on the biblical book sometimes referred to as Ecclesiasticus provides a thorough look at the history, name, and authorship.

Key Features

  • Verse-by-verse exegesis
  • Contains helpful notes, indexes, and appendixes

Praise for the Print Edition

There are no better books in exposition of the different parts of Scripture than those contained in the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges. The series has long since established its claim to an honorable place in the front rank of first-rate commentaries; and the teacher or preacher who masters its volumes will be, like Apollos, mighty in the Scriptures.
