Hear, My Son: Teaching & Learning in Proverbs 1-9

(New Studies in Biblical Theology #4)

Even a cursory reading of the book of Proverbs reveals that it is dominated by the subject of education, or personal formation. The voice of the teacher addressing his pupils resounds from its pages. A wide array of topics is presented, and frequent exhortations challenge the learner to hear and heed the teacher's instruction. This material, however, comes for the most par ...more

Daniel Estes, a fine scholar on the poetry of the Old Testament, contributes this volume in the celebrated New Studies in Biblical Theology (NSBT) series by IVP and edited by D. A. Carson. This monograph considers Proverbs 1-9 for what it tells us about teaching and learning.

He feels that the obvious pursuit in Proverbs is one of education or instruction. The teacher speaks to the student throughout. Though there appears to be a random order in our collection of Proverbs, he see seven pedagogica

I only managed to fit in the first few chapters of Estes' HMS. What I read, I appreciated. (Disclaimer: Dr Estes was one of my professors in undergrad, one who subtly but lastingly shaped my spirituality.)

Estes takes up a "worldview-ish" examination of pedagogical practice in Prov 1-9. While I've grown away from thinking worldviewishly, I still find value in the reflective attention to the text and the ways this text shapes us evident throughout HMS.

I hope to come back and read further in this v

I am grateful to have re-read this book by a longtime friend. In this monograph of Proverbs 1-9, Dr Estes shows us, among other things, the roles of the teacher and learner in the transmission of wisdom. Perhaps a suitable summary is this quote "In order to assimilate wisdom, the learner must organize all of life according to the fear of Yahweh." (p.148)

Proverbs 1 to 9 is an extended address on the value of wisdom from a father or elder teacher to a son or student that introduces the wisdom sayings of the remainder of Proverbs. Daniel J. Estes has taken a novel approach to this literature and written a monograph exploring the philosophy and practice of teaching and learning reflected in this instruction given in these chapters. It is part of the New Studies in Biblical Theology series of monographs.

That may sound like dry, stodgy stuff but what

A great book that synthesizes the material in Proverbs 1-9 concerning the pedagogy implicit within the text. Lots of excellent exegetical insights that the preacher and teacher will find helpful. Highly recommended.
