Good Beginning Study for Small Groups Nov 10, 2006
Ordering this book to use as a resource for an in-depth Bible Study for adults, I was pleased to find some great applications. However, the strength of this book really lies more in the realm of beginning Bible students. I think it is a great way to introduce the wisdom of the OT while still maintaining the vital truths of the NT. I've since used the book as a resource to teach Teens from church as we looked at topics in Proverbs, and it was perfect for them. It is best adapted for small group use, and its topical nature lends itself to some great dynamics in discussion. Dee Brestin is always a safe bet!
Supplement with The Complete Guide to the Book of Proverbs. Jan 4, 2000
Overall this is a good fill-in-the-blank workbook for studying Proverbs individually or in groups. Group study suggestions are made and there are leader's notes. Although the copyright is 1975, it was revised in 1993 by Dee Brestin. Most quotes are from the NIV. The 5" x 8" booklet has 96 pages and offers 16 lessons based on selected themes. For a more in-depth commentary on Proverbs as a companion read THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE BOOK OF PROVERBS by Cody Jones. The comments are interesting and very readable and put things into a historical setting. It includes many historical drawings and photos to give you a sense of the culture of the time. There is a topical guide and 6 translations in parallel to aid understanding.
