About This Message Series

The Books of Wisdom and Poetry show God’s people grappling with humanity’s most difficult questions, profoundest longings and highest aspirations. Their content transcends cultures and historical context to deal directly with the concerns of the universal human condition. The Hebrew word for wisdom is connected to the concept of skill. Wisdom has been defined as, “the art of skilled living” (Bruce Waltke). These books were written to instruct people who are struggling to live well, worship well, love well, suffer well, or die well. They reveal a better way, a more prudent way, a wiser way — God’s way.
