We Review Opening Up Proverbs

Posted by James Warwood  ·  Be the first to comment

If you’re opening up the Bible and scratching your head more times than an itchy gorilla with dandruff – you need this book. ‘Opening Up Proverbs’ helps willing Bible readers grasp a deeper, fuller understanding of the book of Proverbs, no matter how clueless you might feel.

The best way to describe Jim Newheiser's commentary series would be to compare each book to a digestive biscuit; he has written them to be nibbled. They are short, brief introductions to a single book to be read alongside the Bible. On its own, this book will crumble in your lap like a dry digestive biscuit. But when dipped in the richness of scripture this book nourishes the drinking experience of devotional Bible reading.

Organised by topic rather than verse-by-verse, the book splits up Proverbs into bite-size sections such as child training, sexual wisdom and wisdom at work. Each short chapter has editable paragraphs with clear titles, and ends with further study notes and questions to think about while reading Proverbs.

The whole series is purposefully brief to multiply the pleasure of reading the Bible – more a devotional supplement than a biblical commentary. Those looking for in-depth, comprehensive study shouldn’t buy these books. Those looking for a breakthrough in devotional Bible reading, a better relationship with scripture and a Proverbs lifestyle should buy this.
