God's Wisdom for Man

God's Wisdom for Man by Norbert Smith and Jay Hall provide a complete topical treatment of Proverbs and James. Smith and Hall categorize all of the proverbs and all the verses from the book of James. God’s Wisdom provides the context for wise thinking in its Introduction and Conclusion. If you are looking for a guided tour through the divine wisdom of Proverbs and James, you will find this volume most helpful. The potent maxims of Proverbs and James impart a profound wisdom that is urgently needed in today’s confused world. Do the righteous thrive and the wicked suffer in general? Read this book and find out.

The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom,
and humility comes before honor. (Pr 15:33, ESV) 

Get wisdom - it's worth more than money;
choose insight over income every time. (Pr 16:16 Msg)

Francis of Assisi rightly said:

Where there is charity and wisdom,
there is neither fear nor ignorance.
Where there is patience and humility,
there is neither anger nor vexation.
Where there is poverty and joy,
there is neither greed nor avarice.
Where there is peace and meditation,
there is neither anxiety nor doubt.
