Book Review: Proverbs Commentary by Kidner


My family and I have been reading through the Proverbs this new year and as much as I love the book of Proverbs alone, a commentary is quite helpful for aiding in the deeper study of the Word. I really like Derek Kidner and his commentaries. This particular commentary is not difficult to read for the regular layperson. It is easy to look up a particular section of a Proverb because of the straightforward layout. It's definitely a good tool to have for enhancing your biblical studies. And as always, Kidner points you to the deeper meaning in Christ or the Bible as a whole.

Book Review: Idols of a Mother's Heart by Fox


Wisdom in practical living is how I would categorize this book. This author will consistently point you to Christ in her writings. This book is no different. However, the focus is for mother's and how we often live with idols in our heart. We all struggle with idol making but motherhood brings a unique set of idols to the table. With grace, the author helps the reader try to discover what those are and then replace them with truth. 

This book has questions at the end of each chapter that would help with group discussion. You can read it alone but I recommend you grab a group of moms and really sit and think about what idols you are embracing often without even knowing. In community you can help one another see these and support one another in the process of letting them go. Plus, who doesn't need support and encouragement on the journey of motherhood?

I recommend this book as edifying for mothers. It will bless you. You can get a copy from here.
