Memorable Wisdom

Money. Relationships. Gender roles. Work.

These can be challenging topics, but the Old Testament book of Proverbs can help us navigate them.

In Living Well, you’ll find a blueprint for how to build a life according to God’s wisdom—helping us live well both in our earthly lives as well as strengthening our covenant relationship with the God who gave us Proverbs as a guide. Allan Moseley walks with readers through specific topics—money, relationships, work, and more—examining what Proverbs has to say and translating it into practical advice for our daily lives.

Following the advice in Proverbs will help you live counterculturally—but it’s also crucial for living well in the eyes of God.

Praise for Living Well

Textually faithful, gospel-rich, and well-organized, this is a go-to resource for understanding the great Book of wisdom.

—J.D. Greear, pastor, The Summit Church (Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina); author, Gaining by Losing: Why the Future Belongs to Churches that Send

This book is vintage Allan Moseley! It is biblical, clear, practical, and witty. It perfectly represents the genre of Proverbs. The Proverbs were intended for real life. Moseley masterfully puts this on full display in this very fine work.

—Dr. Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

N. Allan Moseley helps us see God’s wisdom for relationships, health, money, and life in general in a light that brings to life the deeper meaning of proverbs we have perhaps read many times. Living Well will remain on my table, next to my Bible, for those daily encounters when I need another helping of God’s promised wisdom.

—Dan Forest, lieutenant governor of North Carolina
