This work on the book of Proverbs, distilled from years of teaching and preaching Truth by Dr. Finnigan.
He said: “We live in a confused, lawless world. Many are making a living, but have never learned how to live.
“This explains, among other things, the rising tide of depression and mental discord. Knowledge abounds, but how to use that knowledge effectively is another matter, that’s where wisdom comes in to play.
“The Book of Proverbs (gems of wisdom from God) promotes the skill and common sense to gain God-given success. Living Skillfully entails seeing this life from God’s perspective, and acting accordingly. What can possibly be more important to equip us for this unique journey on earth?”
