Does ancient wisdom have anything to say to us?


Warren Baldwin thinks so.

Biblical proverbs reflect wisdom and experience, but they offer the added ingredient of divine influence and personality. For over two thousand years, the book of Proverbs has provided wise counsel and spiritual direction for God’s people. The short, rapid style and the piercing truths of Proverbs penetrate the readers’ hearts, challenging them to align their lives with the wisdom they proclaim.

Roaring Lions, Cracking Rocks, and other Gems from Proverbs brings the ancient proverbs into contemporary focus by applying their truths to modern situations. Marriage, parenting, friendship, work, money, and other topics are brought under the scrutiny of this ancient wisdom. Each chapter in this thought-provoking must-have is a short essay on a specific proverb that makes God’s word come alive with fresh relevance.
