Written to help the reader be familiar with the book of Proverbs and especially to know how to read the book profitably. It serves to introduce the many facets and truths of the Old Testament proverbs. The book does not provide a detailed analysis of every proverb but instead suggests guidelines and samples of how to go about making a personal study for oneself. As part of the series ‘The Old Testament Made Simple’, the format of the book has been so designed to make studying the Old Testament relatively ‘easy’. The series seeks to help the reader discover the wonderful but often neglected world of the Old Testament.
