Proverbs For Life

by Dick Hopkins

80 Pages

As we live our lives in this complex world, we all need wisdom and guidance. In the book of Proverbs we find principles for living that will help us as we try to live out our Christian life. This study, while useful to any Christian, is specifically designed for men and women in prison or on parole. In each of the chapters there are real life illustrations of the principles taught in Proverbs.
