Underlying Proverbs 1 - 9 is a rich tradition of instruction on how to live.
Its primary value is wisdom and in this ground-breaking work Daniel Estes describes that tradition and explains how wisdom is found in 'the fear of the Lord.'
Skilfully organising what appears to be a random collection of sayings he sets out in a clear and insightful way what Proverbs tells us about teaching and learning how to live as well.
This book not only opens a window in the wisdom writings of the Old Testament but also provides important material for reflection on practical education and the role of teachers in the world today.
It is will be of interest to Bible readers, parents and teachers alike.
