About

This Bible Study has 11 Lessons

A proverb is wisdom in a poetic nutshell: it is small, like a nut, and gives more and more flavorful meaning as we keep pondering it. In the book of Proverbs we find divinely inspired observations concerning how to live rightly as the people of God. Proverbs' wisdom is far from theoretical; wisdom given by our Creator relates to every part of his creation—from our words, to our friendships, to our money, to our marriages and children—and on and on. Kathleen Nielson guides us in how to digest the poetry of Proverbs and relish this part of God's revelation with thankful delight. She encourages us to hear and respond to wisdom's call and let the light of Christ illuminate our lives.

Living Word Bible Studies offer a guide into deeper study of God's Word, one whole book at a time. Five days of questions in each lesson lead the way to careful textual study, with helpful context and commentary woven throughout. The aim is to read the Scriptures—and to learn to read the Scriptures—with ever increasing discernment, delight, and conviction.

Endorsements

"Pastors and Christian educators are always on the lookout for rich, well-researched, reliable, helpful, clear teaching material that will get our people into the Word together, helping us to understand its meaning, to see its implications for us in all of life, and to pray it back to God. These studies supply us with exactly that."

—Ligon Duncan, senior minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson MS

"With rich insight and wisdom, Kathleen Nielson invites her students ’to grapple with the text’ as she provides helpful contexts and comments along with stimulating study questions. Kathleen’s studies are good food for the soul— challenging, convicting, and very, very encouraging."

—Carol Ruvolo, acclaimed author of Bible studies

“Dr. Nielson's love for the biblical text and her desire to convey its meaning in its context coupled with her literary acumen and engagement with everyday life have given the church a magnificent resource.  Simply the very best!”

—R. Kent Hughes, senior pastor emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, IL

“To all these studies of varied books of the Bible, Kathleen Nielson brings her own personal reverence and love for the Scripture, her background as a scholar of literature, her experience as a leader in a variety of local church settings, and her zeal to see others apply God's Word to their lives in a thoughtful manner. It's a vigorous and robust combination.”

—Joel Belz, founder, WORLD Magazine
