Amy and I have been reading Peter Leithart's Wise Words: Family Stories That Bring The Proverbs to Life, and we have really enjoyed the book. The book is a collection of eighteen stores that focus on a biblical proverb. Yet, the stories are much more than simple proverbial tales because they also invoke themes, images, and stories from all of Scripture. I highly recommend the book...but as LaVar Burton would say, "you don't have to take my word for it." Go and read a sample.
