New Christian book provides practical application of ancient wisdom from the Book of Proverbs to one’s daily life

Dr. Lorin Bradbury, author of "Treasures from an Old Book, Ancient Wisdom for a Modern World".

Lorin Bradbury, Ph.D. releases the first volume of ‘Treasures from an Old Book’.

Turning timeless truths into practical lessons, Lorin Bradbury, Ph.D., presents an application of ancient Hebrew truths from the Book of Proverbs in “Treasures from an Old Book” (published by WestBow Press).

The Book of Proverbs is filled with wisdom that can guide people in daily living. Bradbury believes that a study of the Book of Proverbs will not only make the foolish wise, but will make the wise wiser and the good better. Hence, in this first volume of “Treasures from an Old Book,” the author addresses all the verses in the first nine chapters of the Book of Proverbs in a series of 51 unique lessons.

“Treasures from an Old Book” masterfully extracts ancient wisdom and makes it relevant to the contemporary reader. As a pastor and a psychologist, Bradbury draws upon both disciplines, providing insights and practical applications of Biblical truths. Within the chapters (lessons) of this book, readers will discover how to better relate to their spouse, how to be a better parent, how to train their children, how to better interact with others, and how to develop a close relationship with their Heavenly Father.

The author stated, “I would like readers to find hope in the midst of a chaotic world. Jesus is the light of the world, and as long as He is in this world, He is actively involved with his creation and in the lives of His people. These lessons provide hope that no matter how difficult life may be at the moment, applying the godly principles found in this book and remaining faithful to God, will result in a better ending.”

The book is available for purchase at It is also available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
