How exactly does one become wise? With the overwhelming flood of information and opinion in our timesā€”much of it a mixture of spin, sound bites, and trivialitiesā€”it is crucial we turn back to the Bible and pay close attention to the deep insights that have stood the test of time.

Proverbs 1:20 tells us that ā€œWisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her voice.ā€ The wisdom of God does not stand aloof, but instead graciously moves toward us, into the world where we live and struggle day by dayā€”offering us her very best, if we will only listen.

Pastor and teacher Ray Ortlund unpacks the book of Proverbs in twenty-one straightforward sermons, providing a biblical worldview on everything from money, sex, and power to that of the daily routines of an average life. Drawing relevant parallels from ancient culture to present day, he helps us understand how the book of Proverbs is practical help for ordinary people going through everyday life.

Most importantly, Ortlund shows how the Proverbs point to Jesus and his counsel for the perplexed, his strength for the defeated, his warning to the proud, his mercy for the broken. With careful treatment of the Scriptures and uncomplicated language,Ā Proverbs: Wisdom that WorksĀ bridges the gap between real-life experience and the scholarly depth of many commentaries.

Part of theĀ Preaching the WordĀ series.
