Hear my Son:
Teaching and Learning in Proverbs 1-9 (NSBT)

Daniel J. Estes (Apollos, 1997)

Blurb Review


Underlying Proverbs 1-9 is a rich tradition of instruction in how to live. Its primary value is wisdom. In this book, Estes describes that tradition and explains how wisdom is founded in 'the fear of the Lord'. Skilfully organising what seem to be random sayings, he sets out in a clear and insightful way what Proverbs 1-9 tells us about teaching and learning how to live well. It opens a window into the wisdom writings of the Old Testament, and also provides important material for reflection on practical education and pedagogical theory today. Of interest to preachers, parents and teachers.
