Item description for Windows of Wisdom: Fresh Views on Proverbs' Truths by Stephen F. Olford...

The Book of Proverbs is a collection of "wisdom sayings" presented in practical terms for daily living. It deals with the ethical and moral aspects of godly behavior. The dominating theme of Proverbs is wisdom, which is the right use of knowledge. This wisdom is more than an intellectual pursuit: it also involves devotion to the Lord and obedience to His will. Each proverb is a "window of wisdom" on some doctrine, duty, or danger that the believer is to observe and respond to with appropriate action. Windows of Wisdom are devotional studies designed for the daily Quiet Time as well as group gatherings and pulpit preaching.

Reviews - What do customers think about Windows of Wisdom: Fresh Views on Proverbs' Truths?

Come to the banquet  Jan 12, 2008
This is a wonderful devotional and study tool. It's a spiritual banquet. The reader can choose to sip milk or dig into thick sirloin! Dr. Olford provides short, easy-to-read applications of a key passage from each of the 31 chapters of Proverbs. The content is Christ centered, scholarly, and practical. With repeated readings, I continue to be moved by the sincere, spirit-filled richness of this book. It's an encouraging guidebook on how to "work out my salvation."
Wisdom for Every Day of the Month  Mar 19, 2003
Dr. Stephen F. Olford, born in Africa of missionary parents and educated in England. In 1953, became pastor of Duke Street Baptist Church, Richmond, Surrey. From 1959-1973 was senior minister of the famed Calvary Baptist Church of New York City. He hold a doctorate in theology and is author of 'Anointed Expository Preaching,' 'The Way to Holiness: Signposts to Guide Us,' 'The Christian Message for Contemporary Life: The Gospel's Power to Change Lives,' 'Not I, but Christ' (with Billy Graham), 'Going Places with God' and many more.

Windows in Wisdom, is the book of Proverbs. It was written during Mr. Olford's bout with cancer. God's Word and Spirit sustained him. As a result of his faith, Olford's wrote this collection of "wisdom sayings" presented in a practical way for daily modern living. Each Proverb deals with the ethical and moral aspects of godly behavior. The key word in Proverbs is wisdom. There are thrity-one chapters in Proverbs-that's one for each day of the month. Every devotional theme is explained and applied from the selected verses. These enable you to follow the expositions and meditations with helpful supporting references from scripture.There are windows of light on God's message. These help you to look through it's meaning. This bring's to mind Proverbs 25:11, "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." Each devotional helps you think in applying the truth to your daily life. Meditation helps to discipline ourselves. That's when Prayer enters. Receiving what the Holy Spirit has said to us we pray to enable Grace to obey the truth that has been revealed to us.

I find it helpful in that it helps the person to seek the wisdom he or she desires in their life. It will strengthen them in the right use of knowledge. It's designed to help them develop prayer and meditation in their daily walk with Christ. These beautiful wisdoms go anywhere with you from Quiet Time to church gatherings and preaching.
