A Fool's Guide to Wisdom: Finding Discernment in an Age of Fear and Folly

Our society is fearful, frustrated, and desperate for answers.

Our world is changing rapidly, and our culture has been deceived in many ways. This work will open the mind of readers as they gain a whole new perspective. In his groundbreaking book A Fool's Guide to Wisdom: Finding Discernment in an Age of Fear and Folly ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-61215-766-5; $25.99, hardcover, 978-1-61215-791-7; also available in e-book format), author Richard G. Myatt exposes the underbelly of what masquerades as truth today. The book directly confronts the myths and lies so prevalent in our culture.

“Our society is fearful, frustrated, and desperate for answers,” says Myatt, a licensed psychotherapist with extensive experience. From the fields of medicine, business and organizational leadership, to family sociology, we find a clarion call which beckons us to return to confidence in traditional values. The reader will recognize the devastation caused by the ‘unwise’ and discover the fulfillment that is ours through wisdom. We find that God was right!”

Paradox occurs when the opposite of what one expects to be true, is true. And, according to Myatt, the capacity to see paradox is the prerequisite to becoming wise. People of faith are primed in paradox. They know that the weak become strong, those who lose their life find it, and the disheartened find a God of grace and mercy who uses those “things that are not—to nullify the things that are” (1 Cor. 1:28 NIV). The reader will be compelled to find the paradoxical truths in God’s economy where less is more, slow is fast, and a Sabbath rest is available for those who know that when we are still, we find the Lord who will fight for us.
