About the Book
They may be people who lie, drink too much, love to talk about themselves, explode in anger, or won’t listen to anyone. They are people you love but may not wish to be around. Intelligent fools. Is there any hope for them? For us?
Nearly 3,000 years ago, a wise old king wrote about these intelligent fools, describing them perfectly in all their hurtful and irritating ways. But he didn’t stop there. He offered hope: a way to break free from the patterns that do damage both to the fool and to those who love them.
In this book, Intelligent Fools: Smart People, Dumb Choices, we dig into the writings of King Solomon as he describes the typical foolishness of everyday people. We also examine what he says about how we can change our foolish ways and become men and women of wisdom. Intelligent Fools is a challenging look at the dumb stuff we do and the hope that brings life, peace, and love.
