In the Proverbs, God offers us wisdom for real life and he shows us Jesus, who was wisdom personified and exemplified.

This accessible, absorbing expository guide to the Proverbs by Kathleen Nielson brings these ancient sayings to life, helping ordinary Christians to see what it can look like to enjoy living in line with God's wisdom in the great multitude of everyday situations and decisions we face.

This book gives an expository rather than topical treatment to the book of Proverbs, so it can be read as originally intended. It also has more application than a typical commentary, making it a great resource for personal devotions, as well as useful for leading small-group studies or sermon preparation.

There is an accompanying Good Book Guide available.

"Bible-centered, Christ-glorifying"

Aaron Lee, August 11th 2020

While Nielson writes to explain the verses, she does not fail to show us the big picture of Proverbs and how it points to Jesus Christ. As the Bride of Christ, the Church is called to be wise in the world. This book is better than any Study Bible notes. Hear wisdom calling in these words.... continue reading
