Though it will not come off the press until August, Eerdmans has now released my next book for pre-orders on its website: A Life that is Good: The Message of Proverbs in a World Wanting Wisdom. In time the book will also be available for pre-orders through Amazon and other online vendors, finally becoming available in a bookstore near you in August. I’ll let you know as soon as the book hits the shelves.
From the website:
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.
