Why Should Christians Read Proverbs? with Dr John Goldingay


Why Should Christians Read Proverbs? with Dr John Goldingay

Proverbs, especially its short quotable quotes, are lively, colourful, provocative, and often funny. They’re a pretty good read in their own right. But outside of being relatable and a reasonably fun time, why should Christians read the book? It’s part of the canon, yes, but what’s it there for?

Dr John Goldingay is a renowned Old Testament scholar and in late 2023 published a ⁠new Proverbs commentary with Eerdmans⁠. John joins Jason and guest host, Dr Jeff Mooney, to discuss the fear of the Lord, the wise and the foolish, and other key themes in Proverbs of surprising importance to our own spiritual formation.
