The Book of Proverbs - Be Transformed Version


The Book of Proverbs


Be Transformed Version


Timeless Wisdom From Scripture


Book Cover


The Book of Proverbs like never before!


Welcome to this new version of the Book of Proverbs. I hope the timeless wisdom, knowledge, and instruction from the world's most famous book becomes a companion and friend in your life journey. There are 31 chapters and if you read one each day, you will have read them all in a month.

The goal is not to study the book, but to let it dwell within you and bear its good fruit. That won't come from a study or a one-time read. It will take time, month after month. However, as the book promises, gaining wisdom and understanding will be more valuable than anything else you will ever desire.

For decades, I have read a chapter of Proverbs every day, completing the book every month. I wanted to expose my grandchildren to this source of wisdom but realized there were a lot of words and concepts they might not understand. About four years ago, I started looking for a standalone version of the Book of Proverbs in an easy to understand but accurate version. That led me to this project, which I embraced with enthusiasm and passion.

The base of this version is the public domain World English Bible, but little of it remains. I have made many changes where I think a different word or concept would be better understood for a young or older reader. Most important was to remain accurate, and I have resisted the urge to paraphrase.

Get Wisdom!
Get Understanding!
Be Transformed!

Consumed by Hate, Redeemed by Love

Consumed by Hate, Redeemed by Love: How a Violent Klansman Became a Champion of Racial Reconciliation

I first heard of Thomas Tarrants in a Christianity Today cover story about him in 1978. A radical terrorist who hated blacks and Jews, he was involved in more than 30 bombings of churches, synagogues, and homes before the FBI captured him.

After many years in prison, he was radically transformed by an encounter with Jesus through reading the Bible. This book is an update of an earlier one and gives details of what has happened in his life in the fifty some years since his conversion and release from prison.

He also gives some warning and instruction to us here in the present where hatred and division have become so common even amongst Christians.

I read this book in one day. I could hardly put it down.
