“Through the Kellers’ beautifully written devotionals, readers will be inspired and motivated to practice what they read ‘in thought, word, attitude or deed.’”
“Superb . . . we should be grateful to Keller for his wisdom, scholarship, and humility.”
—The Gospel Coalition
“Tim Keller’s ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him.”
“Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Keller’s skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience. . . . Observing Dr. Keller’s professorial pose on stage, it is easy to understand his appeal.”
—The New York Times
“Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians.”
“At Redeemer Presbyterian and in several books, Keller shaped a vision of Evangelicalism that de-emphasizes politics and stresses care for the poor, personal sacrifice, and inclusiveness across ethnicity and class.”

The sections are not divided as in Songs of Jesus in order by Chapters. It does not begin with proverbs 1 and end with proverbs 31. He divides the sections into topics, such as :
1- Knowing Wisdom: What is Wisdom
2-Knowing Wisdom: What is Foolishness
3- How do we become Wise
4-The Fear of the Lord
5-Knowing the Heart; Understanding the Heart
7- Seven Deadly Sins: Anger, Envy, Pride, Gluttony, Sloth, Greed, Lust each having its own section
8-Knowing the Times and Seasons: Guidance, Planning, and Decision Making - This part is very practical and awesome!
9-Insights for Our Age.
14 Knowing Jesus, The True Wisdom of God.
For example, the reading for November 6, Keller teaches on Proverbs 30: 8-9 "Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread, Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say 'Who is the LORD?' Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God. Keller goes on to say "Money can corrupt us not only by its presence but by its absence. He then explains these verses in more detail and how we can apply this verse to our lives, answering questions including what it means by daily bread and should we as Christians divest ourselves of all money beyond a simple lifestyle? Keller continues " What it does mean is at least this: Our homes, clothing, and lifestyle should be modest within our circle and neighborhood so we can be as generous as possible. The Christian community should model to the world as society in which wealth and possessions are seen as tools for serving others and not as a means of personal advancement and fulfillment." He also quotes scriptures outside of Proverbs including 1 Timothy 6 about money and 1 Peter 2: 7 about our Lord Jesus Christ being our true precious treasure! Of course Tim goes deeper into this topic for this day and for the following days!
So far I am really enjoying this devotional! The way it's organized by topics works really well! For this review I've read several days of this month, plus reading over selected topics. I've especially enjoyed the topics about Money and Knowing Jesus, the True Wisdom of God. This devotional goes very deep and is very thought provoking and edifying. It is meant to be read daily. It is saturated with scripture, including many scriptures outside of proverbs. I recommend it to all who love to spend time with the Lord. All of us need God's Wisdom ! As James wrote "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally without reproach, and it will be given to you . But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord." James 1: 5-7
This devotional book is invaluable in gaining new and different perspectives. It relies heavily on the authors vast knowlege and insight. I loved the number of resources quoted and their diversity. I highly recommed this book.
Here is the spolier from the last day...
Prayer: Lord, I have learned that wisdom is only a by-product of wanting something more than wisdom—to see God! Aim at knowing you, and you get wisdom thrown in. Aim just at wisdom—in order to be successful—and you get neither. At last I see it. It took me long enough. I praise you for your patience with me. Amen.
And the treatment is often very illuminating with insights way beyond the trivial. And the approach is very personal, not academic - so this is not a book intending to educate you about the wisdom in Proverbs but rather to use the wisdom in Proverbs for spiritual growth in a very real down to earth way. Excellent! I never can read just one “day” per day. There is so much to ponder and give serious thought to. Highly recommended.
