Oh, I really love this book! A word-by-word-by-word Bible study of 31 beloved Proverbs presented by Liz Curtis Higgs, who used more than thirty different English translations of the Bible for research. Combined with her gentle honesty and timed-just-right humor, this book is easy to read yet powerful!

I have to admit, it wasn't what I expected when I read the title of the book, 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path. Because there are 31 chapters in the book of Proverbs, I thought it was a study of the entire book. But this is better. A word-by-word-by-word study of every verse may have been overwhelming for both writer and reader. Looking at 31 verses under Higgs's microscope was just enough. Though she could write a sequel if she wanted to. Higgs's Bible studies always bring so much truth to light.

As a bonus in this book, Higgs follows each chapter with a feature called One Minute, One Step. This is a short activity promised to only take one minute of the reader's time yet designed to help the reader take action right away, cementing the lesson learned. I've really appreciated each of these.

Waterbrook Multnomah sent me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my opinion, presented here. I recommend this book to anyone desiring a closer walk with God through a greater understanding of His Word.
