Inter-Varsity Press Proverbs: LifeGuide Bible Studies, Revised Edition

The book of Proverbs is the Bible's how-to manual. The proverbs teach us how to be successful and prosperous in our work, our dealings with family and friends, and our relationship with God. The direction and guidance they give us is practical, concrete, reasonable and fruitful. By reading Proverbs we discover the vital importance of learning to live wisely. Now available in IVP's revised LifeGuide Bible Study format, Proverbs features questions for starting group discussions and for personal reflection, as well as a new "Now or Later" section following each session. 10 studies, for individuals or groups. 80 pages, softcover from InterVarsity Press.

I like that the Scripture is written before each lesson, that way we are all using the same version of the Bible

This was an excellent selection for our diverse bibly study group. It seems to have met the spiritual needs of everyone, generating numerous discussions, which allowed us to further research and provide additional information. Many of us discovered that our lives parallel the proverb sayings, and that we can use this as a daily guide in our normal interactions. Great book!

This is a very interesting study of the Proverbs. It's a good topical study. We are currently working thru it in a small Bible Study group we have.

While I have used and liked many Lifeguide studies before, I was not particularly pleased with this one. Some of the questions were difficult to answer or confusingly worded and the leader's guide section in the back tended to circle around the questions but never quite answer them. If I had it to do over, I would pick a different study of Proverbs for my bible study group.

I have recently finished the 10-part study with my adult Sunday school class and I am very pleased with the LifeGuide. I have participated in classes using the Life Guides, but this was my first time using it as a teacher. The organization of this LifeGuide by topics covered in Proverbs is excellent and the individual study questions bring out interesting discussions from the class. I will caution other teachers not to try to cover each and every question during every session... there is more material provided than can be presented in 45 minutes without rushing through the lesson. The Leaders' notes at the back of the LifeGuide provide guidance for the more difficult questions and precludes the need for a separate "teacher's edition." Again, I caution other teachers to not think of this LifeGuide as a "plug-and-pray" system, advance preparation and a good commentary is essential to making the material come alive for your class. All in all, this (and many other) LifeGuide is an exceptional "bang for the buck" at five dollars per copy (if ordering 10 or more) for almost three months of study material.
