New Commentary on Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs
The Wisdom Literature in general, and Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon in particular have been especially challenging books for many to teach or preach. I am always looking for helpful resources for these books. For this reason, I was particularly delighted to receive a copy of the new commentary on Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon in the Apollos Old Testament Commentary Series by Daniel Fredericks and Daniel Estes. I have not had the opportunity to get into the book yet, but I have found other volumes in the AOTC series to be helpful, so I am quite hopeful. In any case, here is the publishers description of the book.
This volume by Daniel J. Estes and Daniel C. Fredericks expounds the books of Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs in a scholarly manner, and it shows the relevance of these important books to today's readers. Edited by David W. Baker and Gordon J. Wenham, this commentaries are intended primarily to serve the needs of those who preach from the Old Testament, but is equally suitable for use by scholars and all serious students of the Bible.

Much thanks Adrianna Wright and InterVarsity Press for the review copy.
