The ESV Proverbs: Daily Wisdom presents the proverbs divided up into daily readings over the course of a year, allowing the reader space and time to absorb the truths of Scripture at a slower pace.

Proverbs: Wisdom that Works (Preaching the Word commentary series)
Raymond C. Ortlund
Pastor and teacher Ray Ortlund unpacks the book of Proverbs in twenty-one straightforward sermons, providing a biblical worldview on everything from money, sex, and power to that of the daily routines of an average life. Drawing relevant parallels from ancient culture to present day, he helps us understand how the book of Proverbs is practical help for ordinary people going through everyday life.
Most importantly, Ortlund shows how the Proverbs point to Jesus and his counsel for the perplexed, his strength for the defeated, his warning to the proud, his mercy for the broken. With careful treatment of the Scriptures and uncomplicated language, Proverbs: Wisdom that Works bridges the gap between real-life experience and the scholarly depth of many commentaries.
