Proverbs: The Ways of Wisdom leads the reader in a detailed study of this book of wisdom literature. Each lesson’s five days of questions (along with helpful comments and context) guide in a process of careful examination and application of the biblical text. Early lessons explore the background, shape, and theme of the entire book. The bulk of the lessons dig into Proverbs’ poetic kaleidoscope of wisdom-themes: words, work, neighbors and friends, marriage and family, sex, money, planning for the future. This study leads readers to listen well to God’s inspired word in the book of Proverbs.

“This study is my favorite starting place for help people learn to delight in the study of Scripture. Not a pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps or a go-be-a-good-Christian approach, Kathleen helps us discover how a life transformed by the gospel is motivated to live out the principial wisdom of Proverbs as a grateful response to salvation.” - Teren Sechrist
