Timeless Truth for the Modern Woman

High Praise for Proverbs: Timeless Truth for the Modern Woman
At one point in this devotional, Rene Tyson writes, "In Western culture, the word wisdom conjures up images of old men with long beards." This collaborative devotional, written by nine women, rightly challenges that stereotype. Rene Tyson, and eight other women, in short, clear segments, make the sometimes complex book of Proverbs accessible as they offer their wisdom and honest personal experiences in meaningful discussions. They include practical advice for the modern woman, addressing topics such as codependency, tensions over a woman's role in the church, and temptations women face. They take an honest look at the overused Proverbs 31, reading it in a fresh way. This guide will be helpful for individual study as well as for small groups.

Many a proverbial pit of misery and hardship could be avoided should a young woman take to heart the advice that Rene Tyson offers in her fresh application of the ancient book of Proverbs. The book of Proverbs offers advice on how to be successful in business, romance, with friends, and anywhere else that a person might find themselves. Much like King Solomon to his beloved son, Ms. Tyson guides the reader through this book into its practical application in the modern world.
