Sacred Wisdom: An Interdisciplinary Commentary on the Book of Proverbs



Sacred Wisdom: An Interdisciplinary Commentary on the Book of Proverbs

The wisdom literature found in the Book of Proverbs shares timeless truths that transcend boundaries, including living responsibly or recklessly, human pain and suffering, justice, kingship, marriage, the discipline of children, wealth and poverty, industriousness, integrity and truth, and fear of the lord.

Much like the previous interdisciplinary commentary by Tiberius Rata and Kevin Roberts, Fear God and Keep His Commandments: A Practical Exposition of EcclesiastesSacred Wisdom is written for thoughtful students of the Bible who want theological and psychological perspectives on a much beloved book of the Old Testament. Well-respected long-time pastor, Knute Larson, joins Rata and Roberts to provide a pastoral viewpoint on the words of Proverbs.
