Business and Personal Wisdom: A Wise King's Advice
By: Bob Biles
About the Book
In the first nine chapters of Proverbs—Solomon’s letter to his son who will be king someday—Solomon provides an astounding amount of wisdom. If the son will listen to, accept, and claim this wisdom for his own, he will be a wonderful king and enjoy the fruits of kingship. The question is, will he? Business and Personal Wisdom: A Wise King’s Advice takes the wisdom Solomon gave and translates it into wisdom for us today using historical references and anecdotes from author Bob Biles’ career and personal life. In multiple ways, today’s world is not much different than the world of Solomon’s time. Like then, many today are shouting their ideas, thoughts, counsel, and advice on how the world should be and how others should act. In his day, Solomon found a good deal of it was simple, foolish, deceitful, or evil. Solomon would have the same option of much of today’s talk and speeches. Rather than listen to that chattering, Solomon’s sincere hope is you will hear Wisdom’s entreaties and the true wisdom in Solomon’s words and become wise.
It is Bob’s hope that the business and personal applications he has drawn from Solomon’s letter to his son will change your life.
