The book of Proverbs has always been a favorite of mine.  I have read through the book several times as it provides great advice for daily living.  In her new book 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path Author Liz Curtis Higgs breaks down thirty-one verses is the influential Old Testament book.

The author takes one verse and created very readable, understandable, and relatable devotional book out of them.  Each chapter starts with a verse from Proverbs and the author relates it to everyday life.  She takes it a step further and does not rely on one translation of the scripture.  The main verse at the top of each chapter is from the New International Version, or NIV.  The author utilizes other translations within each chapter such as The Message, VOICE, Complete Jewish Bible, Good News Translation, NET, Holman Christian Standard Bible, and the Contemporary English Version.

Each chapter is fairly short, and is no longer than three pages in length.  At the end of the devotional the author includes a prayer, and a call to action.  The author also includes a Proverbs study guide at the end of the book as an added bonus.  This book is good for anyone who wants a better understanding of Proverbs.

[Note:  This book was provides free of charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.]
