9780825424045: Discovering the Way of Wisdom

An insightful and practical look at patterns for contemporary spiritual growth found in the wisdom of the Old Testament.

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Back Cover:

Budgets, friendships, entertainment, and conversations—not things that immediately come to mind when we think of spiritual growth. However, according to the Old Testament wisdom books (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs), the hundreds of little decisions we make every day are essential parts of developing godly character.

With clarity and depth, authors Curtis and Brugaletta explore essential principles for spiritual growth including developing self-control, nurturing good relationships, practicing fairness and justice, speaking appropriately, and responding properly to difficulty and suffering. This much needed, practical book will help you live in constant awareness of God’s concern for every aspect of your relationship with Him.

“A rich, powerful, and weighty treatment of core biblical themes that constitute the very essence of a life well lived.”

—J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy
Talbot School of Theology

“Without sacrificing scholarship or torturing the biblical text beyond recognition, [the authors have] shown that the Wisdom Literature contains more wisdom than we . . . had ever dreamed.”

—Ronald K. Tacelli, SJ, Associate Professor of Philosophy
Boston College

“A valuable and much needed complement to the emphasis in contemporary spirituality on developing a relationship with God through contemplation and spiritual disciplines.”

—Robert L. Saucy, Distinguished Professor of Theology
Talbot School of Theology
