In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I talk with Ray Ortlund Jr. about the book of Proverbs. Ortlund serves as pastor of Immanuel Nashville, president of Renewal Ministries, a regional director in Acts 29, and a Council member for TGC. Among many other books, he’s the author of Proverbs: Wisdom that Works in Crossway’s Preaching the Word Commentary series. Ray presents Proverbs as an opportunity to sit down with Jesus and have him as our counselor.
