Practicing Proverbs: Wise Living for Foolish Times
Regular Price: $14.99
This is a unique book on a unique part of Scripture. Mayhue introduces us to Solomon, the writer of Proverbs, and then gets to grips with the book itself and its message. He answers some of the most frequently asked questions about Proverbs and how the book has immediate and pressing relevance to Christians today.
Then he re-organises the text of the entire book of Proverbs into six life applications - spiritual, personal, family, intellectual, market-place and societal each also having particular themes highlighted within them.
Practicing Proverbs is one book with multiple uses: devotionial, small group discipleship book, resource for the biblical counselor and for teaching Christian ethics and morality.
Most importantly of all, this is a book to help the reader develop a life that glorifies the source of all wisdom - God.
Dr. Mayhue’s book fills a long-awaited need. It makes the Proverbs accessible. This book becomes a catalog of proverbial principles and illustrations easily found. The opening chapters are a rich treatment of the nature of wisdom and the priority of fearing the Lord. The latter half of the book provides indexes by which the individual Proverbs can be accessed. This is a marvelous tool for the Bible student, as well as a rich resource for every reader.
