The Book of Proverbs


The Book of Proverbs: Writings and poetry on wisdom, teaching humans how to live well in the world. Historically, these teachings were passed down from adults to young children, teaching morality, the meaning of life and the understanding that “the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.” More than just a list of how-tos, Proverbs is poetic art, using metaphor and literary devices to teach us the aim and essence of a good and beautiful life.
