How do we find meaning in life when it seems futile and meaningless? Ecclesiastes takes readers on a journey pondering this timeless question, and this commentary helps set the book within a biblical worldview in order to help teachers communicate and apply the profound truths of Ecclesiastes today.

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. – Clinton E. Arnold, Dean and Professor of New Testament, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

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 the book and provides carefully organized commentary for interpreting, teaching, and illustrating this book.

Dr. Ed Curtis is an ideal person to write this commentary on the books of Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs. His scholarly expertise combines with his many years of living out the wisdom literature to provide pastors and teachers with an invaluable commentary that will help them communicate in a deep yet practical way the treasures of these often-underappreciated books. – Michael J. Wilkins, Distinguished Professor of New Testament Language and Literature, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
