Since Proverbs has been my favorite book in the Bible for sometime, I was delighted for the opportunity to read and review Proverbs Reconstructed by Gus Dallas. Dallas purposes to present the book of Proverbs in a structure-friendly format to help readers better apply it to their daily lives.
The black chalkboard cover gave me the feel of being back in the classroom and set the stage for me settling in my desk for a fresh look at Proverbs, the book of wisdom.
What did I think?
In looking at the table of contents I was confused at first by the duplication of some topics such as answer and confidence but in reading the preface, I discovered the author’s goal was to show the positive and negative sides of such topics. However, I think I would have preferred to have them all listed under one heading.
I like the idea of having the Proverbs grouped together by subject matter and think it will be a great reference in the future. The book uses scriptures from the New King James Version. I also liked that I could easily jump to particular subject matter of choice in the Kindle edition of the book.
Who is the book geared to?
