In my studies of Proverbs Bruce Waltke’s & Charles Bridge’s commentaries on the book have proved very helpful. Now, James Newheiser builds on these works & does a marvelous job of arranging & explaining the contents of the book in a very practical way. As I read through Newheiser’s comments I found myself being challenged & receiving fresh insights for my own personal life and for my ministry to others. I commend it without reservation.
—Dr Wayne Mack (M.Div., Philadelphia Theological Seminary; D.Min., Westminster Theological Seminary),

Living in a fallen world is full of dangers for Christians as well as opportunities for serving God & one’s neighbour in love. Newheiser shows incisively how the best life consists in avoiding the former (folly) & engaging in the latter (wisdom) out of ‘the fear of the LORD’ that is love to Christ.
—Hywel R Jones, Professor of Practical Theology. Westminster Seminary California

In an age of open-mindedness & an abysmal lack of discernment in the church, scores of Christians grope for easy & instant solutions to life’s problems.This book is a practical, encouraging, & insightful guide to godly living. Jim weaves the wise sayings of this book into a cohesive unit with clarity, balance, & a deep commitment to God’s glory, while unlocking helpful principles that address problems in marriage, parenting, communication, work, wealth & other aspects in life.
—Bob Amigo, Pastor of Higher Rock Christian Church, Quezon City (Manila), Philippines
