From the Inside Flap:

"Sages across the centuries have long recognized that material prosperity does not inevitably result in spiritual fulfillment, and that continued, anxious attempts to buy `salvation' actually diminish human well-being. Our pursuit of the `good life' through the frenzied pursuit of wealth not only may not pay off, it actually carries its own costs ... such as anxiety and diminished quality of relations with family and friends."
--from the Introduction

The authors of Proverbs knew that money's seductive call did not lead to the joyful life it promised. They knew, also, how to find that joyful life, and offered instruction for attaining it in the Book of Proverbs.

With a careful hand, Sandoval digs beneath the surface of these carefully crafted verses and releases their wisdom for you to use in your life. He examines the ancient sayings to illustrate their modern applications and challenge you to breathe your own life into them by using them every day.

With careful scholarship and probing discussion questions, Sandoval encourages you to rethink your own financial interactions as you explore your beliefs about the poor and other socially vulnerable groups, bribes and gifts, the advantages and disadvantages of wealth, and more.

About the Author:

Timothy J. Sandoval, PhD, is associate professor of Hebrew Bible at Chicago Theological Seminary, where he teaches courses on the Bible and economic ethics. He is a published authority on the Book of Proverbs and other Hebrew Bible-related topics for both scholarly and general audiences.
