"Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the open squares" (Proverbs 1:20 NKJV). In WISDOM CALLS, Jeff Smith mines the Old Testament Proverbs for Twenty-first century applications, finding nuggets of truth amid the axioms of Solomon and other inspired sages. The biblical proverbs personify Wisdom as a sage woman, offering guidance and the benefit of experience to those who would strive to prosper spiritually in this life. Drawing upon a selection of 120 proverbs and passages, WISDOM CALLS is useful as a daily devotional book or for a little light reading when only weighty subject matter will do.
