Take the wisdom in the book of Proverbs and leave your legacy with the next generation
Let Scripture reform the next generation.
There are many different kinds of legacies we can leave, but sharing yourself and your faith with the next generation will always stand the test of time. Through showing himself and his wisdom in the book of Proverbs, God has also left his legacy with us and relies on us to share it with our children and grandchildren. But before we can share that wisdom, first we must grow in our own understanding and knowledge and record, reflect, and consider what we have learned.
Pass it On provides readers with an opportunity to create a legacy of wisdom and faith and to share it with their children and grandchildren. As readers are guided through the book of Proverbs, they are asked to create their own personalized, wisdom journal with the aim of giving it to someone they love. Through careful study, answering questions, writing out prayers, and sharing personal stories, readers can create a lasting keepsake for themselves and for their families and friends.
Created by Champ Thornton, best-selling author ofThe Radical Book for Kids, Pass It On is an innovative resource to strengthen families and help them grow in their love for God and each other. This is a perfect gift for an older and wiser friend or relative, so they can share themselves and what they have learned about God with the next generation.
The fresh and careful translation provided comes from Dr. Bruce Waltke, who, now in his eighties, has devoted his life to a humble and Christ-focused study of God s Word, and especially the book of Proverbs. His two-volume work on Proverbs is considered by many as the premier commentary in the English language. As you study the translation of individual chapters, add your own comments in the margins. And feel free to circle, underline, and connect key words or phrases as you see them in the chapter for the day.

This is such a great book, absolutely love it and see it making the perfect gift for so many! "Pass It On" is a leather bound edition that really does look like a journal and I love this style for this as it is so much more than a book or a devotional book for that matter. It is a book to read and grow closer to God and with others through studying and reflecting on the book of Proverbs, but then your thoughts can be shared and passed on to others, your children, grandchildren, a friend, anyone really. That is why I love the style as it is so much more than a book, it is an keepsake. There is ample space to write on the lines provided in this and also in the margins on the pages. Each chapter in this book focuses on each chapter of Proverbs. The text for each chapter is printed at the start of the chapter, making it so accessible and right there; although honestly I will probably rewrite some of my notes and thoughts from this into my Bible to have there while reading. I love this book, it is a great format and a wonderful keepsake.
