“In an age where too many ‘Bible’ studies fail to open the Bible—or, if opened, fail to touch on the actual themes in the text itself—Nancy Guthrie immerses us in the wisdom of the Word. How refreshing! With her keen observations, penetrating applications, and thoughtful, engaging questions, Nancy Guthrie’s latest study on the Old Testament Wisdom Books and the Psalms gets us to see and smell, taste and touch, and understand and apply the everyday wisdom of Christ—our creator and crucified Lord.” - Douglas Sean O'Donnell, Senior Pastor, New Covenant Church, Naperville, Illinois; author, God’s Lyrics and The Beginning and End of Wisdom

Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
