Book Review – God’s Book of Proverbs (CSB)

main proverbs

The book of Proverbs is one of the most-read books of the Bible, and with good reason.  We need wisdom, and there is no better place to get it than straight from God’s word.  But remembering where to go for proverbs related to specific issues is not always easy, as they sometimes jump around in the Bible.

Enter God’s Book of Proverbs by Broadman & Holman.

This is a wonderful little book that takes the Proverbs from the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) and arranges them topically so that one can easily locate proverbs related to whatever issue one is needing wisdom on at the time.

The book is cloth over board with a small dust jacket wrapped around it.  It includes one ribbon bookmark, which I think is a great touch.

There is a presentation page, if you want to give it as a gift.  (And I think it would make an amazing gift for many situations, such as marriage or graduation.)

After a brief introduction, there is a table of contents where one can look for and find the section they want to dig into wisdom about.

Proverbs TOC

In each section, the proverbs related to that topic have been pulled together in one place for easy reference.  Below are the first pages for “anger” and “prosperity.”

There is also an additional index for finding specific topics.

At a retail of $9.99, this is an amazing little book!  While I would never say we should replace the Proverbs as they are in the biblical canon, having this handy companion volume is great.  It makes a great quick reference when you know what wisdom you need.  I highly encourage you to pick up a copy of God’s Book of Proverbs.

*Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
