Item description for The Message of Proverbs: Wisdom for Life (Bible Speaks Today) by David J. Atkinson...

Overview
In this book the ancient Lady of Wisdom cries out again. She summons us to the life skills of godliness and helps us say no to the foolish and destructive enticements that inhabit the malls, campuses, housing divisions and office buildings of the postmodern West.

Publishers Description
The book of Proverbs is the most practical book in the Bible. Its instruction in the art of living has been long tried and long proven. Its proverbial seeds of discernment are ready to be planted and rooted in the receptive soil of Wisdom's sons and daughters today. In The Message of Proverbs the ancient voice of Lady Wisdom cries out again. She summons us to the life skills of godliness and helps us say no to the foolish and destructive enticements that inhabit the malls, campuses, housing divisions and office buildings of the postmodern world. But as much as we glean from the surface of Proverbs, there remains still more in its depths. David Atkinson's commentary wonderfully illumines the ancient cultural and religious background of the discourses and sayings of Proverbs. Wisdom's values are brought into sharp relief. More important, Atkinson brings the wisdom of Proverbs into conversation with the wisdom of God now more fully displayed in Christ. In this way the place of Proverbs in the pattern of God's Word is clearly accented.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of Proverbs: Wisdom for Life (Bible Speaks Today)?

The Complete Guide to the Book of Proverbs is better.  Jan 4, 2000
David Atkinson is a British theologian from London. He introduces Lady Wisdom from chapters 1-9 and then discusses themes of Proverbs in terms of her values. Atkinson quotes other Biblical scholars frequently and then shares his own opinions. His basic translation is the New International Version. The scholarly commentary is insightful although a little dry. There are no drawings, photos, index or glossary. For a more reader-friendly and more in-depth commentary on Proverbs 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. There are many historical drawings and photos to give you a sense of the culture of the time. Six translations in parallel aid understanding and there is a topical guide with 96 themes arranged alphabetically.
