The Wisdom of Solomon at Work

The Wisdom of Solomon at Work offers stories about work and relationships that inspire us to look beyond ourselves as we serve and lead. Delving into that deep quarry of ageless truths, the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), the authors open up a rich source of experience, insight, and wisdom that can be used to help us cope with the problems of modern life.

The dramatic stories of Job, Moses, Ruth, David, and Solomon contain universal lessons that everyone-regardless of their faith heritage-can appreciate and use to find wisdom to work and live by. The authors explore the dilemmas faced by these extraordinary figures, discuss how they resolved them, and then apply the same principles to a variety of specific contemporary problems. The authors use examples of people from all walks of life, both well-known and unknown, to show how the virtues taught in the Old Testament can be applied in our lives today.

The Wisdom of Solomon at Work illuminates the abiding virtues-faith, courage, compassion, integrity, and justice-that then and now equip us to meet life's challenges. It illustrates how spiritual wisdom can be woven into the fabric of everyday life, informing and improving everything we do.

  • Provides a fresh, contemporary perspective on the timeless wisdom of the Old Testament
  • Uses personal stories to show how people today are reconciling spiritual values with the pressures of modern life
  • Shows that wisdom is something which can be cultivated by everyone
  • By the author of the bestselling Leadership Wisdom of Jesus
