A Woman’s Wisdom:How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything, by Lydia Brownback
The next book I read really slowed me down. This is not a lightweight book, nor is it easy to read. It was interesting, but again, without a story line, it seems that I loose much of my reading speed.
A Woman’s Wisdom: How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything, by Lydia Brownback
This is not really a book to sit down and read it is more of a Bible Study. Lydia Brownback focuses on the Book of Proverbs, and systematically goes through different areas of life connecting each area to the advice in Proverbs, backing it up with other scripture. The book is very interesting, but rather difficult to read. It is written more to younger women, but there are parts that apply to women of all ages. It is more like lifelong advice from an older relative or a mother that turns your focus to the Bible for direction. . In today’s world, we often forget to connect our lives to Biblical direction with all the distractions; this book helps to turn your eyes and heart back to the source of direction.
If you did not grow up in a strong Christian family with the benefit of Bible based advice, this book will be a good source of Christian advice for you. If you just need to hear it from another source, or need a refresher, it book is an excellent way to get that support.
