Editorial Reviews

Michigan Association of Regular Baptist Churches
This is a very helpful, insightful, and practical look at models for spiritual growth found in the wisdom books of the Old Testament. With clarity and depth, the authors explore essential principles for spiritual growth including developing self-control, nurturing good relationships, practicing fairness and justice, speaking appropriately, and responding properly to difficulty and suffering. A book worthy of consideration to help meet the day by day needs of your people.

This is one of those books that enrich our understanding of the Old Testament while providing a greater understanding of the New. It combines excellent scholarship with amazing read-ability, a combination that is difficult to achieve. Particularly impressive is the way the authors show the importance of the wisdom literature and the number of times Jesus taught directly or indirectly from that part of the Old Testament.
