Ecclesiastes takes readers on a journey pondering the meaning of life in the midst of hopelessness. This commentary helps set the book within a biblical worldview in order to help teachers communicate and apply the profound truths of Ecclesiastes today. Song of Songs is full of evocative poetry, but centuries of interpretation have produced little consensus about how this unique book should be understood. Edward M. Curtis lays out the key themes of each book and provides carefully organized commentary for interpreting, teaching, and illustrating Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs.
I can think of no one better equipped to write a commentary on the wisdom literature than Ed Curtis. Readers will discover many helpful and practical insights from Ed’s own wisdom as he skillfully guides inquirers through the complexities and delights of this literature.
