Item description for 101 Most Powerful Proverbs in the Bible (101 Most Powerful Series) by Steve Rabey, Lois Rabey & J. Stephen Lang...

J. Stephen Lang has taken many of the Bible's most profound proverbs and explains then in language we can all understand. Filled with advice for overcoming everyday challenges, the 101 Most Powerful Proverbs in the Bible seeks to remind readers about what's truly important in life through passages that extol such qualities as patience and godly living, and the benefits of virtue.

Publishers Description
Furnishes an inspirational treasury of 101 of the Bible's most important and profound words of wisdom, broken down into modern-day language and accompanied by helpful advice on how to cope with the challenges and adversities of life.

From Publishers Weekly
This heavily anecdotal, occasionally touching and exasperatingly uneven collection of meditations surveys the Book of Proverbs, the venerable aphorisms of Hebrew scripture, as an extended lesson in character development. The reader will come away with a helpful sense of the range of topics covered by the ancient Proverbs writers, who were capable of comforting clarity about what happens to fools and evildoers and also of caustic observations about money management (and mismanagement) that could be ripped from today's financial pages. Drawing on sources as diverse as his immediate family, Calvin Coolidge and the rock group the Eagles, Lang portrays Proverbs as a collection of fundamental lessons in morality that need to be relearned in each generation. Although Lang, a well-established author and former book editor, is clearly well versed in European and American history, he sometimes descends to gross generalizations, e.g., "the main reason that so many cities today are hellish places to live is that so many of the inhabitants have no self-control." Some will be amused, and some probably annoyed, by the writer's fondness for Confederate General "Stonewall" Jackson and the 16th-century Scottish Protestant firebrand John Knox. Lang's essays are often powerful, occasionally incisive and more often than not instructive. Like the other books in the "101 Most Powerful" series (previous installments have explored biblical prayers and promises), each brief meditation closes with a resolution for readers; some of these are useful, some close to silly.

Reviews - What do customers think about 101 Most Powerful Proverbs in the Bible (101 Most Powerful Series)?

Open Anywhere, It's All Good  Oct 3, 2005
This book has something in common with the Bible's Book of Proverbs - you can open it to any page and find something good. The chapters are only 2 or 3 pages each, and each one focuses on a particular Proverb. My wife and I bought this book to give as a gift to our minister, but we got to thumbing through it and liked it so much we kept it for ourselves and bought him something else. I have a very hectic work schedule, and to be honest I really don't have time to do any heavy reading, but this book has a nice "bite-size" quality to it, so I can grab a chapter here and there without committing myself to reading it from page 1 to the end. I figure in time I will get the whole book read! Proverbs is full of sensible, practical wisdom, and so is this.
A Genuine Joy to Read  Aug 28, 2004
What attracted me to this book when I opened it in a local bookstore was a chapter with the title 'Pig Snouts and Sequins.' With that provacative title, I just had to read on. That chapter looks at Proverbs 11:22, a verse about a 'beautiful woman without discretion.' Well, every woman (and man) I know has met that type of woman, and the author of this book shows a real understanding of her type, and of the verse from Proverbs. I was hooked enough to buy this book, which has truly deepened my appreciation for the insights of Proverbs. Each short chapter looks at one particular verse from Proverbs, and gives some insight into everyday matters--gossip, honesty, temper, beauty-without-discretion, materialism, and the list goes on. I like all the books in this '101' series, but this is my favorite, since I think it is really the most practical book about the Bible I've read in a long long time.
Practically Enjoyable  Jul 6, 2004
I mean this literally, for this book is practical and enjoyable, just as the Book of Proverbs is. I'm one of those people who has zero interest in theology, but I do have an interest in the Bible as a guide to living in the world. That is what the Proverbs are all about, ditto for these 101 brief meditations on some of the best Proverbs. The author does what some of the best preachers and writers do, pairing off Bible references with incidents from his own experience, relating to marriage, children, self-control, and other nuts-and-bolts matters we all deal with on a daily basis. This isn't "fancy" writing, just very direct, presenting readers with the Bible's very sane view of how to get along well (and morally) with one's fellow human beings. Most of the chapters were well written, but in particular the story about the "women without discretion," who had aged well on the outside but was an immoral wreck inwardly. Don't we all know people like that? Anyway, a hearty thumbs-up for this book.
A Mostly Good Mixed Bag  Mar 16, 2004
I give this collection of devotional essays a definite thumbs-up. Maybe the reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's like the Book of Proverbs in the Bible--not all of it applicable to my own life, so here and there a chapter didn't really interested me much. But I do like this approach of building a brief chapter around one verse from Proverbs, especially since a lot of them have to do with money matters, which is something we can all relate to. The book displays a huge amount of common sense, which (as it says in the Intro) isn't nearly as common as it should be. I guess my favorite sections were the ones dealing with bad companions, since I went through a phase years ago of having the worst kind of friends. I can recommend this book, with one caveat: just skip the chapters whose subjects don't really apply to your own life.
Readable, and a Great Gift Book for Practically Anybody  Mar 10, 2004
I have to admit I'm not that fond of most so-called "devotional" books, since they seem a little stuffy. This one isn't, not a bit. The chapters dealing with 101 verses from Proverbs take a unique and refreshing perspective on these ancient bits of wisdom. Just one curious example, a chapter on Proverbs 22:2, which reads "Rich and poor have this in common: The Lord is the Maker of them all." The chapter talks about, of all things, iced tea, which is called "the Great Southern Exercise in Democracy," noting that in the heat of summer, rich and poor Southerners all quench themselves with the same refreshing drink. My first reaction to this chapter was that it seemed a bit shallow, but it occurred to me that it was a perfect parable illustrating the Proverb. I also liked the chapters dealing with child-rearing. The Bible takes a pretty sober view of kids and the need to discipline and correct them, and so does this book, which includes some rather painful stories about how children behave when adults let them do as they please. Anyway, all in all I found this very enjoyable to read, especially since it introduced me to some Proverbs I wasn't familiar with. Since the chapters cover practically every sphere of human activity, this would make a nice gift book for practically anyone, especially with its attractive cover.
