Publisher's Summary

As the Psalms take us into the heart of David, so do Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs take us into the heart of Solomon. The book of Proverbs fits squarely into the genre of “advice to a son” literature. In this book, Solomon offers advice to his son, advice to a young man going out into the world for the first time. We’re told in 1 Kings that Solomon wrote 3,000 proverbs; in the book of Proverbs we have 375 of them: pithy sayings that state traditional wisdom in a striking and memorable fashion.
Join Logos Bible Study as Dr. Bill Creasy explores the three categories of Solomon’s advice to his son: (1) choose your friends carefully; (2) manage your finances wisely; and (3) don’t get involved with someone else’s wife!
