Proverbs From The Poet Preacher$18.99Add to cart
Just as the biblical book of Proverbs reveals the wisdom of an ancient king of Israel who dedicated himself to Jehovah in his youth, so too this book presents the wit and wisdom of a modern school teacher and church leader who committed himself to Christ at the age of seven. Compiled, arranged, and edited by Ralph Vile’s eldest son, John, this book contains some 2,500 of Ralph’s aphorisms from a fifty-year period, arranged under more than 200 topics covering the range of practical and spiritual living. A unique mix of universal truths and deeply held personal opinions from a man with a good sense of humor who loves both rhymes and paradoxical word plays, this book will amuse, challenge, and inspire general readers as it provides insights, illustrations, and reflections for pastors and speakers.
