Advice books are no short-lived trend, even though much of the advice parading as “wisdom” proves shallow in the long run. What we need is biblical wisdom, and even more…we need hearts set on the One who came to set us free. The book of Proverbs unlocks the key to the very real challenges we face, and Lydia Brownback’s exploration of Proverbs, A Woman’s Wisdom (Crossway, ISBN# 978-1-4335-2827-9)  shares her findings. From freedom to purity to biblical femininity and beyond, Lydia’s conversation with Lynne invites you to know the very Author of wisdom and apply his relevant riches.
