"[Bartholomew] has succeeded in drawing together the best of previous scholarship and then added his own unique insights that break much new ground for future research. The commentary demonstrates Bartholomew's wide reading, careful research, literary sensitivity, and intellectual and cultural awareness."--Daniel J. Estes, Bulletin for Biblical Research
In this addition to the Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms series, Craig Bartholomew, coauthor of the well-received Drama of Scripture and a leading voice in the call for a renewal of theological biblical interpretation, combines a careful exegetical reading of the book of Ecclesiastes with keen theological insights. 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. All serious students of the Bible will find here an accessible commentary that will serve as an excellent resource for their study.

The Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms series is tailored to the distinctives of poetry and Wisdom literature. Features include

  • Emphasis on the message of the biblical book
  • Special attention to poetic structure and literary devices
  • Incisive comments based on the author's translation of the Hebrew text
  • Exegetical rigor, incorporating linguistic, historical, and canonical insights
  • Closing reflections on each section that explore the text's theological dimensions
  • Textual notes highlighting important features of the Hebrew text
