Heavenly Wisdom (Proverbs) (Welwyn Commentary Series)

Heavenly Wisdom (Proverbs) (Welwyn Commentary Series)

$32.99

Paperback
The book of Proverbs is intensely practical. Here is 'truth in street clothes'. It deals with everyday subjects such as laziness, pride, handling money and telling lies. Here we meet familiar folk such as the bargain-hunter, the neighbour you see too much of, the practical joker and the 'morning person' who forgets that others take a while to surface.

Charles Bridges once said that of all Old Testament books it 'is the one which we may think of as most distinctively educational'. This is its tone. A teacher speaks to his student, an old man to a young man and, chiefly, a father to his son.

Above all, Proverbs points us to Christ, the one 'who has become for us' who believe 'wisdom from God'. Here is an excellent place to begin to learn about Christ and about wisdom. It has been said that, as the Psalms give us Christ singing the law, so the Proverbs give us him meditating on it. Truly to understand him, we must get to grips with Proverbs. Truly to be wise, we must get to grips with Christ.

Gary Brady has been the pastor of Childs Hill Baptist Church in north-west London since 1983. A native of South Wales, prior to studying for the ministry at London Theological Seminary he did a degree in English at Aberystwyth and later trained as a teacher in Cardiff. He is currently studying historical theology with the John Owen Centre. He is married to Eleri and they have five children, all boys.

'For twenty years Gary Brady has pastored an inner-city London congregation of all ages, inter-racial and multi-abilitied. This rich commentary on the book of Proverbs began its life in the regular sermons of the Lord's Day. It was written in the midst of all the pastoring, evangelism, committee work, editing and writing of an exemplary twenty-first-century minister of Jesus Christ. I stand in awe and admiration of him.' Geoff Thomas


- Publisher Proverbs is a book that is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. Do you want to be wide? Do you want to be skilful, shrewd and practically able? Do you want to be intelligent, informed, knowledgeable, The purpose of this book is to show you how!
