A Woman’s Wisdom: how the book of Proverbs speaks to everything

Lydia Brownback

About This Book

Advice books are no short-lived trend, even though much of the advice parading as “wisdom” proves shallow in the long run. What we need is biblical wisdom, and even more than that we need hearts set on the One who governs all our practicalities. The book of Proverbs unlocks the key to both, helping us to face very real challenges such as:

  • handling our freedom, independence, and material resources wisely
  • keeping ourselves sexually pure
  • practicing biblical femininity in a world that scorns us for it
  • sustaining God-glorifying marriages
  • elevating biblical priorities ahead of day-to-day pressures

Exploring the timeless counsel in the book of Proverbs, A Woman’s Wisdom teaches us to know the very Author of wisdom and to apply his relevant, how-to riches.

I really liked “A Woman’s Wisdom,” especially for a 20-somethings aged group. There were a lot of chapters that challenged us to think about some of our habits and outward behaviors, and what those might be communicating about the condition of our hearts. Are we just getting sucked in to the messages of our culture, or are we engaging with them through the lens of the Gospel?While sometimes mid-chapter it would start to feel a little legalistic, Brownback always wrapped everything up with the message of grace and Christ’s love for us. It felt similar to “respectable sins,” but targeted specifically to women.
