 I love the beautiful outside of this lovely book and would have been likely to recommend it solely because of this- but the contents of the book are even better. Living the Proverbs- Insights for the daily Grind. I was so thrilled to see that he handled and addressed the daily grind so well in these short but in-depth chapters. He also addressed daily grind matters like encouraging others, guarding your tongue, gossip, anger and sorrow. I expected to hurry through this book but I found myself answering the questions mentally, looking forward to applying the Scripture within, and being amazed by how well written, applicable and good this book is. Especially important was the chapter on Biblical illiteracy. The chapter on sluggardness is especially illuminating to me, excuses that I often made like "I could do it if I only had such and such" suddenly looked woefully lacking. A wise person will not fear "failure" they will learn from it and acknowledge God's sufficient Grace that can work through their lack of confidence, skill, or desire. The end of the chapter on Lasting consequences is very powerful, "Many flirt with the temptation, thinking there're strong enough, moral enough, wise enough, or smart enough to avoid sinning, how sadly true. I also like how the author gives the original meaning of some of the words, they give even more significance to the verses. I know this book was sent into my life at this time by God as it is a potentialy life transforming, It helped to uncover areas of my life that are in sin and showed me ways to come out of it, An awesome book, I will definately be rereading it soon likely as a daily devotional. This book could effectively be used as a Bible study or a Daily Devotional for anyone struggling with the daily grind. I received this book free from Worthy Publishers in exchange for an honest review  Living the Proverbs, Insights for the Daily Grind  is a beautiful new book from Pastor Charles Swindoll.
