The book “Commentaries on the Book of Wisdom” (ReadersMagnet; 2022) by Russell Marlett tells about the discovery of thirty-two eight-line verses – life-fulfilling truths – and their application to daily living. The story is told in the first person by Ezra Burton, a sailor who received these verses from a mysterious presence in a Guatemalan jungle hut.
Ezra described the mysterious figure as “a person of modest height, clad in a one-piece robe with a cowl that cast an impenetrable shadow over his face.” The mysterious figure gave him the thirty-two verses, which make up the Book of Wisdom. “The Book of Wisdom is never complete,” said the mysterious figure to Ezra. “There is more… “It has not been revealed. What more is to be known will be known in its time.”
The thirty-two verses are followed by short commentaries that expand on them. The verses touch on spiritual/philosophical themes with practical and moral application. They are expressed in a way similar to those of many Eastern philosophers.
“Commentaries on the Book of Wisdom” offers the reader valuable insights and tools to turn their life around and change their point of view. By reading and reflecting on this book, they will learn to live more richly, conquer their fears, see opportunities in midst of challenges, and get more out of life.

Russell Marlett grew up in a small company town in the Gulf Coast area of Texas. Reading was his primary activity as a child and into his teen years. His college career lasted two years, after which he embarked on an exploration of possibilities which included fighting forest fires, driving a truck in the grain harvest, working as a ranch hand, and serving as a paratrooper in the army.
He stumbled into a career in the automotive parts industry, met and married one of the most beautiful women he had ever seen, and became a suburbanite in the Houston area. As a family man, he took the family to church. He was asked to teach a class, which was his true introduction to an exploration of spirituality. Teaching required research, and research revealed that there is an underlying common truth in nearly all religions and religious philosophies.
He and his wife are now retired, but the exploration of other ideas, as well as those he has held onto for lo these many years, is a never-ending quest.
