The Way of Wisdom – Timothy Keller with Kathy Keller

Tim Keller shows a way to allow the bite-sized wisdom of Proverbs to enrich you daily

Timothy Keller with Kathy Keller – The Way of Wisdom
Hodder and Stoughton 379 pages £12.99 ISBN 978 1 473 64755 8

Timothy Keller follows up on his daily readings book on the Psalms with a similar format for the Book of Proverbs. The format is a biblical text, a brief comment, a question or reflection, and a prayer. This is a great way to start the day.

Keller treats the Book of Proverbs (with some sections from Job and Ecclesiastes) in a thematic way using the following seven themes:

Knowing Wisdom
Knowing God
Knowing the heart
Knowing others
Knowing the times and the seasons
Knowing the spheres
Knowing Jesus, the true wisdom of God

Keller is a reliable guide to this book of ancient wisdom. Not everyone will agree with all the details (in the no smacking debate Keller has a mildly conservative take, on marriage he is complementarian) but there is so much that is useful for everyday life packed into this book.

He handles the pithy freeze-dried, tweet length statements in the Book of Proverbs with a skill that Proverbs itself aims to instil. In an age that is drowning in information, a Google world of facts at our fingertips but no wisdom to use them, this book is a welcome antidote.

This would make an excellent Christmas present, or something to give newly-weds or someone going away to college.
