While there is much to learn from Murphy's analysis of Ecclesiastes, I disagree with most of his major conclusions.

The best option on Qoheleth, and among the best volumes in this series, which has many outstanding volumes. Detailed, balanced, and unlike many more technical commentaries, Murphy is not only insightful, but engaging, occasionally throwing in humour, and simply put interesting to read. Murphy has spent so much time on the wisdom books, one can't help but tip the hat to his expertise, which is on display here.

I am glad I read this commentary, but it left more to be desired. Reading cover to cover though, Murphy brought out many excellent points. (Please forgive me. I don't know how to put half stars as I've seen others use, would've been 3.5 stars.)

Lengthy introduction with standard exegesis, the author adds a monologue on the traditional wisdom that the book challenged. [Full Review]
