Product Description

This series addresses key issues in the discipline of biblical theology. Each of the contributions to the series focuses on one or more of three areas: the nature and status of biblical writer or book, and the delineation of a theme across all or part of the Bible. Scholarly yet uncluttered with untransliterated Greek and Hebrew, these volumes avoid technical jargon, interact with the best of the current relevant literature, and -above all- provide clear and creative insights that help thinking Christians better understand the Bible. 174 Pages Softcover Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing.

Publisher's Description

Even a cursory reading of the book of Proverbs reveals that it is dominated by the subject of education, or personal formation. The voice of the teacher addressing his pupils resounds from its pages. A wide array of topics is presented, and frequent exhortations challenge the learner to hear and heed the teacher's instruction. This material, however, comes for the most part without recognizable order or sequence. Much of Proverbs consists of apparently random collections of maxims. As readers, we see many individual pieces, but the puzzle as a whole remains unclear. In Hear, My Son, Daniel J. Estes synthesizes the teachings of the first nine chapters of Proverbs into a systematic statement of the theory of education and personal formation that lies behind the text. Working from the Hebrew text and building upon an extensive analysis of exegetical works, Estes organizes his study of Proverbs 1--9 into seven categories typical of pedagogical discussion: worldview, values for education, goals for education, curriculum for education, the process of instruction, the role of the teacher, and the role of the learner. His work agrees with but also transcends the original purpose of the text by revealing the foundational theory of intellectual and moral formation embedded in this important section of Scripure. It also has valuable things to say about constructing a bibilically informed philosophy of education today.

Editorial Reviews

"It is the holistic vision of 'instruction' . . . that occupies the attention of Dr. Estes. His work not only illuminates some important chapters of the Old Testament but serves as a salutary reminder for the people of God today to keep certain fundamental priorities clear."
