Tim Chester on Proverbs

Tim Chester, ‘On Answering a Fool: Making Sense of the Book of Proverbs’.

Here’s a short piece on the book of Proverbs, with reflections nicely organised under three main headings capturing three main thoughts:

A Created Order
Proverbs are rules of thumb reflecting belief in a created order.

A Moral Order
Proverbs are rules of thumb representing belief in a moral order.

A New Order
Proverbs leave us longing for Christ our Wisdom to create a new order.
