Proverbs: A Foundational Sermon

If you remember, some time ago I did a book review of Pastor Dan Phillips' book on the biblical book of Proverbs, which was released last year. I said then—and reaffirm now—that it's among the best treatments of Proverbs that I have seen. I rarely recommend books for Sunday schools or small groups other than Scripture, but this would be one worthy exception. All the more so because it's focusing on a book of Scripture, treating it in-depth, yet in a user friendly way.

Dan recently preached a sermon, which serves as a foundational to grasp the whole book of Proverbs. Hint: "The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom."

So please allow me to give the book another plug, but also Dan's sermon. In my humble opinion, our country (and world) could use a dose of King Solomon's God-given wisdom and discernment. Megadoses, even.
