Teaching and learning in Proverbs 1 - 9.
In a groundbreaking work Dan Estes produces a systematic theory of education in how to live. He describes and explains the rich tradition of education in living underlying Proverbs 1-9, a tradition based on that most important concept, 'The fear of the LORD'.
Underlying Proverbs 1-9 is a rich tradition of instruction in how to live. Its primary value is wisdom. In this groundbreaking work, Daniel Estes describes that tradition and explains how wisdom is founded in "the fear of the Lord." Skillfully organizing what otherwise seem to be random collections of sayings, Estes sets out in a clear and insightful way what Proverbs 1-9 tells us about teaching and learning how to live well.^This book not only opens a window to the wisdom writings of the Old Testament, but also provides important material pertaining to practical education and pedagogical theory today. It will be of interest to Bible readers, parents, and teachers alike.
The first chapters of Proverbs speak mainly of wisdom and how to find and obtain it. Daniel J. Estes's exlanation of these chapters informs the reader about learning to live well whilst it makes the ancient wisdom more easily accessible.
