About the book

A Proverbs Driven Life is about the wisdom God has given to us in the Book of Proverbs. By this wisdom we can learn how to live in light of what is really true about ourselves, one another, and this wonderful yet deeply flawed world. Ultimately, then, this is a book about life lived for God in the light of divine truth. It’s about life as God intends for us to live it.

Proverbs offers an infallible guarantee that a Proverbs-driven life will result in spiritual and practical blessings. But it is vitally important to remember that the goal of Proverbs is not finding earthly prosperity or even wisdom itself. The goal of Proverbs is to grow ever closer to the God who is Wisdom.


“This is a sign of springtime in what is largely a neglected section of the Scriptures with a promise, for those who read this volume, of a great harvest to come in practical Christian living. With advice on such topics as work and wealth, courtship and children, Selvaggio has given us a valuable treasure of practical wisdom. Just what Solomon intended.”
—Derek Thomas, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

“Many books add to your knowledge. Reading this one will add to your wisdom as you learn how to read the Book of Proverbs, discerning in it both practical insights for living effectively and a signpost pointing your heart to Jesus Christ, the one who is himself the wisdom of God.”
—Iain M. Duguid, Professor of Religion, Grove City College; Author

“This is an artfully written work that reads effortlessly. It is an insightful digest of the reliable and unchanging wisdom of the world’s wisest man, and maintains a focus on Jesus, the embodiment of wisdom.”
—Tedd Tripp, Pastor, Author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart, Conference Speaker
