Wisdomby R.C. Sproul
Dr. R.C. Sproul explores this topic by surveying five Old Testament books known as the “wisdom books.” He explains that to the early Hebrews wisdom meant an understanding of how to live a life pleasing to God. He teaches that the Hebrew believer was in awe of God and feared Him, much like a child who adores and respects his father, and therefore fears doing anything that would violate their loving relationship.
