What will be studied?

Solomon: The Wise King Who Became Foolish
Join Our Daily Bread writer Bill Crowder for a day of exploring the life of King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived. He wrote most of the wisdom literature of the Old Testament, including much of the book of Proverbs. And yet his life had a sad and foolish end. Join Bill as he looks at both the wisdom and the warnings of Solomon in God’s Word, and ultimately brings us to Jesus, who is our wisdom and righteousness.
