Item description for The House That Wisdom Built by Kyle J. Hoover...
Overview The plot of "The House That Wisdom" built is set in the ancient Mesopotamia region in approx. 3000 BC. The writing style is modeled after the King James Bible, giving the book a poetic and romantic effect. The main character's name, Agur, is derived from the name of the mystery writer of Proverbs 30. Since nothing is known of this person, the fictional account of him in this story weaves an intriguing link between what he learns in this book and what people can then read in their own bibles; thus the bible functions as a sort of fascinating continuation of his account. The story begins with a character known as "The Greatest Man in the East" and documents the exploits of his life. As he lays on his death bed, he calls for his four sons so that the inheritance can be distributed between them. The eldest three sons are foolish yet receive the bulk of the inheritance, while the youngest and wise son, Agur (the main character), receives only a tattered scroll. His father assures Agur that this is the greatest of all of the treasures because it reveals the way to the House That Wisdom Built, and it is the secret of his great wealth and success. Along with the scroll his father promises betrothal to Tanjah who is one of his father's servants, and the secret love of Agur's life. She must remain while he makes this dangerous endeavor.

wow what a book Oct 6, 2008
This is an amazing book. It has made me pursue, with passion, Gods wisdom for myself ,so then I may pass it on, not only to my children, but to the family and friends in my life. It is a must read for anyone. Young, old, Christian, Non-Christian, man, woman, father, mother, etc.. Anyone who desires to gain wisdom to make an average you become an extrordinary You. God's wisdom is the only thing that can do this. I am reading it again and will probably read it a couple more times after that. It is that good!!!!! There is just something in it that makes you blessed.
This book has it all! Aug 19, 2008
Not only did it have romance, adventure, betrayal and twists but the book didn't draw you into a fantasy world while you read. Rather it fills the reader with real power and excitement for their own future! This has gotta be made into a movie!
Thought provoking and life changing Aug 18, 2008
Although this is a fictional work, the principles it presents are anything but fictional. The author has compiled a wealth of wisdom knowledge and application, offering the reader opportunity to experience both within an imaginative cast of characters and exciting storyline. If, however, the reader would decide to apply the succinctly presented principles of wisdom to his/her own life, the foundation for greatness would be firmly established. Great read, but even more, life changing!
Don't pass this one up!!! Aug 16, 2008
If your looking for some wisdom theirs no better book (except the Bible) on some of the key success principles that will excel your future. This reads like it was a lost book striate from the King James Bible itself, and if you would tell someone that hasn't read the bible that it was a lost book they would probably believe you. Do not pass this one up, I believe that it can change your life forever!!!
