About-

The book of Proverbs is a cornucopia of practical wisdom on a variety of topics. The insights and truths covered in this book of ancient Hebrew Wisdom literature run the gamut including the nature of true wisdom and understanding, vices and virtues, relationships and roles, priorities, planning for the future, how to communicate, and how to manage one's resources.

In recent decades, the book of Proverbs has increasingly become the focus of attention for Christians who wish to live lives more in tune with God's principles. In particular, Christian thinkers have begun to correlate biblical principles with the study of effective leadership.

Yost examines the subject of godly leadership by using the book of Proverbs as his springboard. This is a scholarly, yet deeply devotional, study of the leader's priorities, the leader's plans, and the leader's speech. Once you have read this book, you will never look at the book of Proverbs or the subject of leadership the same way again.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Yost shows keenly how Proverbs makes leadership a matter of relating to God, oneself, and others, particularly in the use of the tongue, since leadership necessarily involves verbal instruction of what is morally positive while avoiding what is ethically negative. Since Proverbs intends these principles for anyone seeking wise behavior, Yost's book offers the entire church very practical insight on biblical leadership."
--Stephen Stout, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, New Life Theological Seminary

"There is no end to studies on the book of Proverbs, making it difficult for one to stand out. However, Yost's study of principles of leadership in Proverbs is valuable for two reasons. First, few studies focus on the theme of leadership. Second, Yost shows how important the use of the tongue is in leadership. This combined emphasis makes this book a truly valuable addition to the list."
--Benjamin Shaw, Associate Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

"Robert Yost has extracted three of Solomon's foundational principles of leadership and studied them intensely with application to contemporary ministry settings. You can trust him as a thematic guide through the Proverbs. I have watched his life and leadership and been impacted by both!"
--Frank Scurry, President, Carolina Graduate School of Divinity

"The proverbs of Solomon are more than clever, homespun aphorisms. They represent the practical wisdom of that ancient king in his day, and, as Bob Yost explains, provide values and practices well worth pondering by leaders in our time. Modern understandings of leadership are valuable; the old ways also bear careful examination."
--Leighton Ford, President, Leighton Ford Ministries
