My favorite books in the Old Testament are the Wisdom books. I think we often have too "Protestent" an understanding of the relationship between the Old and New Testaments which leads us to minimize the value of the wisdom of the Old Testament. I especially think that we men in the world can benefit greatly from reflecting upon the books of Proverbs, Ecclesiasticus, and Wisdom. With that in mind I am going to begin a series of posts commenting on the Book of Proverbs. Stay tuned!
