Did you realize that such enduring expressions as “the patience of Job” and “nothing new under the sun” derive from the Wisdom literature of the Bible? Now you can explore the wisdom of such extraordinary books of the Bible as Proverbs, Job, Song of Songs, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Sirach, and Wisdom of Solomon with top Scripture scholar and master teacher Fr.

Praise for Michael Guinan
“I first attended a lecture by Father Guinan about 20 years ago and immediately recognized him as a great teacher. He brings top-notch scholarship, excellent delivery, and a strong pastoral sense to every project. Teaching in the Philippines has given him a very broad vision.”– Father Pat McCloskey, O.F.M.,  “Ask a Franciscan” columnist for St. Anthony Messenger
“Fr. Michael Guinan is a great communicator and one of those teachers who is able to assimilate a lot of material… and communicate it all in a concise, clear, and often humorous way. It is no wonder that he is a very popular teacher in the NYKM series.” – Fr. Robert J. Karris, O.F.M., Research Professor, Franciscan Institute, St. Bonaventure University
