Synopses & Reviews
Proverbs is a book of aphorisms that King Solomon, son of King David, collected but did not write. The themes of these short pithy teachings, which embody the spice of human speech, are overcoming ignorance, practicing self-discipline, and having personal integrity. Solomon divides people into two categories: the wise and the ignorant (or foolish), and each verse reflects this dichotomy. Rami Shapiro gives us Solomon’ s wisdom in fresh, lyrical, and absolutely contemporary language.
