Turning timeless truths into practical lessons, Dr. Lorin Bradbury presents an application of ancient Hebrew truths from the Book of Proverbs in Treasures from an Old Book: Ancient Wisdom for a Modern World.
A Look at Ancient Wisdom
The Book of Proverbs is filled with wisdom that can guide people in daily living. Bradbury believes that a study of the Book of Proverbs will not only make the foolish wise but will make the wise wiser and the good better. Hence in Treasures from an Old Book, the author addresses all the verses in the first nine chapters of the Book of Proverbs in a series of 51 unique lessons. The term lessons is used rather than chapters because the lessons do not need to be read sequentially, allowing the reader to benefit from a specific topic for the day.
Treasures from an Old Book masterfully extracts ancient wisdom and makes it relevant to the contemporary reader. As a pastor and a psychologist, Bradbury draws upon both disciplines, providing insights and practical applications of biblical truths. Within the chapters (lessons) of this book, readers will discover how to better relate to their spouse, how to be a better parent, how to train their children, how to better interact with others, and how to develop a close relationship with their heavenly Father.At this time of great uncertainty—a time when the world seems to be in great chaos—the reader will find hope to face and overcome another day. #letstalk #mentalhealth Click To Tweet
