GOD’S BOOK OF PROVERBS (Topical arrangement)

ISBN: 9781462780013
Hardcover $9.99
B&H Publishing
 My thoughts: Using the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) of the Holy Scriptures as text, the staff of B&H Publishing have compiled a small, topical collection of verses from Proverbs. This is a lovely little gift book or one that can be used for personal study or enlightenment. It would also be handy for family devotions and lessons centered on the topics under which the verses are indexed.

For example: The topic of "Anger" is listed. There are 18 verses dealing with anger. So if you are personally dealing with anger, these verses will help you get your anger under control. Or if you have a child who is angry and having trouble dealing with it, you can guide him using these verses.

The book is beautifully bound with a "cloth" hardcover reminiscent of books from years ago. It is sturdy and will last through many years of frequent reading and handling. It will perhaps become a treasure to pass along to others.
"A wise son responds to his father's discipline, but a mocker doesn't listen to rebuke." Proverbs 13:1

My preference as usual is the King James Version for Scriptures. I realize the CSB is consider trustworthy and easily understood. I also acknowledge that God's Word will never return to Him void.

With high school and college graduations and Mother's Day just ahead, this would make a meaningful and lovely gift.

About the book:  God’s Book of Proverbs includes the entire text of the book of Proverbs from the Bible arranged topically. This practical and helpful resource allows readers to quickly access and apply the wisdom and insights found in this sacred portion of Scripture. Also included is the article Connecting Wisdom to Jesus by Trevin Wax explaining how Jesus is the fount from which all wisdom flows.

The God’s Book of Proverbs features the highly reliable, highly readable text of the Christian Standard Bible (CSB), which stays as literal as possible to the Bible’s original meaning without sacrificing clarity. The CSB’s optimal blend of accuracy and readability makes Scripture more moving, more memorable, and more motivating to read and share with others.
