Book Review: The Call of the Wise: An Introduction and Topical Index to the Book of Proverbs

Call of the Wise is an exhaustive yet workable path through the book of Proverbs. Filled to brimming with wisdom and nuggets of good choice making, it is easy for some proverbs to get lost in the sheer volume of sayings. Call of the Wise is a mix of a topical index, theme guide, and also a means of deepening the readers’ understanding and appreciation of this God given wisdom.
This book acknowledges that wisdom is a gift freely given by God. At the same time, it is open in its full profoundness to the serious seeker, or in its basic simplicity to the reader eager to keep going. In addition to providing a roadmap to the wealth of proverbs found in the Bible, the Call of the Wise also offers instructions for understanding them in conjunction with other biblical passages.
No serious student of the Bible or Christian parent intent on imparting God’s wisdom to the next generation should be without their very own – marked up! – copy the Call of the Wise.
