Quick Overview:

John MacArthur takes readers through 1 Kings 1–11 and the books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, exploring the historical period beginning with Solomon’s ascent to the throne, continuing with his writings in the Old Testament, and concluding with his tragic end. This study can be used for personal reflection or for use in a small-group setting.

Solomon is known as the wisest man who ever lived. His writings in the Old Testament range from practical, pithy proverbs to beautiful romantic poetry—and all are filled with his knowledge and insights. Yet behind those writings stood a flawed man who was conflicted between deep wisdom and tragic folly. Sadly, the king who warned against so many sins did not follow his own advice, and he wound up leading Israel into idolatry. Nevertheless, his life and writings provide valuable lessons for us today in the twenty-first century.


In this study, John MacArthur guides readers through an in-depth look at the historical period beginning with Solomon’s ascent to the throne and continuing through his tragic end. Studies include close-up examinations of the vital importance of wisdom—with portraits of the wise woman, the foolish sluggard, and others in the book of Proverbs—and careful considerations of doctrinal themes such as “True Wisdom from God” and “A Time for Everything.”


The MacArthur Bible Studies provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture. Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God with guidance from John MacArthur.
