Wisdom & Worldview in Proverbs
The wisdom literature in the Bible (Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes) is God’s guidance for navigating the ins and outs of everyday life. This course studies the book of Proverbs to understand it in its ancient context and to find modern relevance for its ideas about life and death, education and knowledge, suffering, desire, culture, beauty, vocation, selfhood, politics, ethics, and more.
