Description

"How should I live my life?" This is a question that preoccupies many of us as we go about our daily business. But when it comes to the art of living, the book of proverbs is the best place to start, because its wisdom is no less than God's wisdom.

These studies help you to understand what true wisdom is - and how true wisdom is ultimately found in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eight studies. Leader's notes included.

About Pathway Bible Guides

Seeing Things God's Way is part of this new series of Pathway Bible Guides. They aim to provide simple, straightforward Bible study material for:

  • Christians who are new to studying the Bible (perhaps because they've been recently converted or because they have joined a Bible study group for the first time);
  • Christians with lower literacy levels who find other studies (such as the Good Book Guides or Interactive Bible Studies) too much of a stretch.

Accordingly, the studies are designed to be short, straightforward and easy to use, with an uncomplicated vocabulary. At the same time, the writers have tried to do justice to the passages being studied and to model good Bible-reading principles. They have tried to be simple without being simplistic; no-nonsense without being no-content.

The questions and answers assume a small group context but can easily be adapted to suit different situations, such as individual study and one to one.

Customer reviews

“Less focus on Jesus than the 'blurb' suggests”

Overall we enjoyed this book in our ladies' bible study group. However, we often had to add questions or pointers to get clearly to Jesus, to show that He is ultimate Wisdom, as often the focus would seem to stop short of him & more on 'how we live'.

“Excellent study”

Our group consists of mainly new Christians and is led by two ladies who have been Christians for a long time. Most of the new Christians speak English as a second language. We found this study excellent for everyone, and the older Christians also got a lot out of it. It was simple to follow, the questions were well thought out. It engaged everyone.
