Title: What has Solomon to do with Google? Old Testament Wisdom and our Culture
What does modern culture and technology have to do with the Bible? We live in a world that bombards us with competing claims on our time—and offers different perspectives on what is wise, valuable, and worthy of our attention. The wisdom literature of the Old Testament provides some helpful perspective for the questions that guide our lives: How do we measure success? How should we love? How should we live? What is wise? Join us for an introduction to the Book of Proverbs and conversation about what biblical wisdom has to do with life in the 21st century.
