Tradition holds that King Solomon in all his wisdom gave humankind the Proverbs. The author (Have a New Kid By Friday) focuses on just the first six verses of the third chapter of the Old Testament book. “God gives us the ability to get on the right path if we’ve been on a wrong one,” writes Leman (Have a New Kid by Friday). The author leads the reader on a spiritual journey through the simplest chapter of the Bible. Leman is a psychologist who examines the human heart in light of how people live every day. He begins one chapter telling the children’s story of the three little pigs to demonstrate the effects of stress in relationships with Jesus and God. Believers must be on a constant and diligent journey of faith. Prosperity in a world of hurt creates for the Christian an opportunity to serve in the world. This is a book for active Christians to deepen their faith through the study of a simple but profound scripture from the Hebrew Bible. Leman is an affable teacher, and his words should appeal to anyone looking for a delightful short Bible study. (Feb.)
