Editor reviews

In this live lecture, Dr. Bill Creasy enthusiastically discusses the celebrated lessons from Proverbs. Originally, Solomon passed these sayings to his son so that his son might be wise with money, act faithfully, and choose good friends. Dr. Creasy provides similar lessons from Shakespeare and modern times while giving a historical framework to contextualize these proverbs. An experienced teacher, Dr. Creasy's charisma colors this lecture. He switches seamlessly from joking to instructing, a method that keeps his talk engaging. With his help, studying Proverbs is a riveting experience.

Summary

As the Psalms take us into the heart of David, so do Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs take us into the heart of Solomon. The book of Proverbs fits squarely into the genre of “advice to a son” literature. In this book, Solomon offers advice to his son, advice to a young man going out into the world for the first time. We’re told in 1 Kings that Solomon wrote 3,000 proverbs; in the book of Proverbs we have 375 of them: pithy sayings that state traditional wisdom in a striking and memorable fashion.

Join Logos Bible Study as Dr. Bill Creasy explores the three categories of Solomon’s advice to his son: (1) choose your friends carefully; (2) manage your finances wisely; and (3) don’t get involved with someone else’s wife!

Enjoyable reading of Proverbs

I enjoyed Dr. Creasy reading through Proverbs and picking out little gems. They ring true today as much as they did thousands of years ago.

Proverbs study

Excellent as always. His depth and breadth of the bible, along with funny stories from his own experience, makes it digestible and memorable. I highly recommend his other teachings as well.

Incredible series of lectures!

This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.

Unusually Brief

I really enjoy most of Dr. Creasy's bible studies, however this one is extremely brief and does not treat the book as exhaustively as he treats most other Biblical texts, which made it difficult to give it a high score.
