10 Minutes In The Word: Proverbs – Book Review

Wisdom is a quality that we all need more of in our lives. Did you know that in the Bible, wisdom is defined in Hebrew as hokmah, which means “skill or expertise in living”? Wisdom is so important to God and His people that the Lord dedicated an entire book to this topic!

The book of Proverbs is one of five books that theologians classify as “wisdom literature”, and 10 Minutes In The Word: Proverbs is a wonderful gift book from Zondervan that sheds light and provides modern-day insight on the proverbs of old! This easy-to-read book takes the mystery out of how to interpret the proverbs and helps us to practically apply the wisdom of Solomon (the wisest man who ever lived) and contributors Agur and King Lemuel to our lives.

The book is divided into 46 brief chapters. What amazes me about this book is how much useful information about Proverbs the authors manage to convey in such a short amount of time and space! The book can best be envisioned as being written in a devotional format, where you are given a daily portion of Proverbs to read – insight into the Proverbs – a brief prayer – application questions to help you ponder and apply what you’re learning to your life – an a related quote from Scripture itself.

If you’re looking for an affordable gift to give to a graduate, a new Christian, someone you are mentoring, or a friend, 10 Minutes In The Word: Proverbs certainly fits the bill, but trust me, you’ll want to pick up a copy for yourself as well!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Note: If you like this book, be sure to check out our review for the companion book, Ten Minutes In The Word: Psalms as well!

  5. I think Proverbs is one of those books best digested in small servings, so this sounds perfect.
