The Way of Wise : the Simple Truths of Living Well


Do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you." These and other seemingly simple lessons were hard-won for a hardheaded young man who was more "wise guy" than "wise" early in life.

Now, internationally known psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman shares the biblical wisdom that has shaped him into the successful, joy-filled person he is today. With his trademark wit and humorous stories from his personal life, Dr. Leman shows readers how to jump-start or revitalize their lives both spiritually and practically with words from one of the wisest men of all time. (Hint: It's not him.) Dr. Leman offers hope, courage, and a fresh perspective on living a great life, all in a compact, readable package. This lively and inspiring book makes the perfect gift for professionals, graduates, and anyone who could benefit from simple truths for living well.

My Review:

With a combination of cutting humour and hard-hitting truths, Dr. Leman delivers a memorable message in this motivational read. It's also an incredible study on how to draw deep meaning from concise scripture. Leman delves into 6 verses in Proverbs (3:1-6) and comes up with ten life-changing principles which are well worth the read. He has an easy, approachable style where he doesn't preach but shares his own experiences. That makes the message so much more powerful. Definitely a book that will keep you thinking long after the last page.
