The book of Proverbs is power packed with wisdom that will guide God’s people in daily living and is widely recognized as a source of sound, practical wisdom. It’s a rich fountain of profound but simple insight.
In Volume 1 of Treasures from an Old Book, author Lorin Bradbury, Ph.D. addresses every verse of the first nine chapters of the book of Proverbs in a series of fifty-one unique lessons. He draws upon more than forty years of pastoral experience, making practical applications throughout each lesson to encourage the Christian needing a word of inspiration and to provide insight and application for a busy pastor teaching on these timeless truths.
Ranging from establishing a sure foundation on the word of God, to fear of the Lord, to parental instruction, to warnings against enticement from the world, Bradbury shows that a study in Proverbs has the potential to improve how you relate to your children, spouse, neighbors, and coworkers, and most importantly, how you relate to God.
Lorin Bradbury, Ph.D. is both a pastor and a psychologist and draws upon both disciplines in communicating scriptural truths.
Lorin Bradbury is very intelligent and highly educated. Coupled with his intelligence is his solid, practical understanding and perception. In this book, he has succeeded in unpacking the treasures of wisdom found in “Proverbs” and displayed them so that each of us have access to godly wisdom in our daily lives.

Wisdom has been defined as, “knowing what to do next.” The wisdom of God is found in the book of Proverbs. In these pages, Dr. Bradbury does an exceptional job of making the insight of Proverbs relevant for today. This is an incredible resource for any pastor or Bible teacher. You will never be any better than your resource. The material in this book is well researched and exceptional in the presentation.
