Proverbs are brief, memorably phrased observations on life. Through proverbs, people articulate what they have learned about the art of living. Spending six weeks with Proverbs, Wisdom for Living, and a small group or class can also help to sharpen your perceptiveness, mold your habits of thought, and strengthen your devotion to what is good. Excerpts from the book of Proverbs are included with questions for reflection and discussion, explanations of the text, thoughts and experiences of other Christians, and prayer helps. Each session is designed to take about one hour and a half and can be shortened if necessary.
Proverbs: Wisdom for Living looks at portions of the book of Proverbs and helps readers apply that wisdom to their lives today. Proverbs' wisdom is made accessible to all in this highly practical Bible study book about making smart decisions in all areas of life.
A Guided Discovery of the Bible The Bible invites us to explore Gods word and reflect on how we might respond to it. To do this, we need guidance and the right tools for discovery. The Six Weeks with the Bible series of Bible discussion guides offers both in a concise six-week format. Whether focusing on a specific biblical book or exploring a theme that runs throughout the Bible, these practical guides in this series provide meaningful insights that explain Scripture while helping readers make connections to their own lives. Each guide
• is faithful to Church teaching and is guided by sound biblical scholarship • presents the insights of Church fathers and saints • includes questions for discussion and reflection • delivers information in a reader-friendly format • gives suggestions for prayer that help readers respond to Gods word • appeals to beginners as well as to advanced students of the Bible
By reading Scripture, reflecting on its deeper meanings, and incorporating it into our daily life, we can grow not only in our understanding of Gods word, but also in our relationship with God.
