Somewhere out there is the “good life,” and we’re all scrambling to get it. Glenn Pemberton maintains in this book that we find the so-called good life not in good things but in living well—and the biblical book of Proverbs teaches us how to live that life.
Though based on solid biblical scholarship, A Life That Is Good is not a textbook, commentary, or comprehensive study. It is instead a readable, practical guide to the wisdom found in the ancient book of Proverbs—wisdom on everyday living, speech, relationships, justice, money, and much more. Pastors and church groups in particular will love and benefit from this relevant guide regarding the message of Proverbs for today’s world.
I have been impressed with Dr. Pemberton’s thinking and writing for a long time. In particular, his previous studies of the Psalms, especially the laments and psalms of confidence, have opened up for me new dimensions of understanding. Dr. Pemberton is helpful because he allows his real-life experience to inform his study, so he can explain to us not only about the meaning of the biblical text in its ancient context, but also how that ancient meaning impacts us today.
