Daniel J. Phillips, who blogs at Pyromaniacs, Biblical Christianity, and Hellenisti Ginoskeis, has been studying from the Proverbs.
He has recently reviewed some modern commentaries on Proverbs. He regards as indispensable the two volume New International Commentary on Proverbs written by Bruce Waltke and and the Tyndale Old Testament commentary on Proverbs written by Derek Kidner. He also recommends, but much less enthusiastically, Tremper Longman’s commentary on Proverbs in the Baker series and Duane Garrett’s New American Commentary on Proverbs. But, for devotional or preaching purposes he writes that Charles Bridges’ commentary on Proverbs is “hard to beat.”
He is presently working through John Kitchen’s Mentor Commentary on Proverbs so be sure to keep an eye on his blogs as I am sure he will be reviewing it on one of them.
