Item description for Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith (Buechner, Frederick) by Frederick Buechner...

A single-volume publication of the author's theological series on the biblical dimensions of everyday words includes Wishful Thinking, Peculiar Treasures and Whistling in the Dark and is revised to include a new introduction and nineteen additional entries.

Publishers Description

Beyond Words n (1.) Terms or names that point to the realm of mystery and depth that lies beyond our ordinary experience. (2.) The reality that is beyond even the power of beyond words to convey, and that can be known only by experiencing it for yourself.

"A word a day to keep the demons at bay." This is how Frederick Buechner likes to describe this witty and incisive dictionary. A daily devotional from one of today's greatest spiritual writers, Beyond Words offers 366 entries from Buechner's three alphabet books, Wishful Thinking, Peculiar Treasures, and Whistling in the Dark, including a new Introduction and nineteen new entries.

Providing definitions of both sacred and ordinary words, as well as biblical characters, Buechner unabashedly brings his fresh perspective to words, concepts, and characters we thought we understood. This is a great introduction to Buechner's work as well as a library staple for those already well versed in his writing. It is Buechner at his best. Whether readers find themselves tearful from a deeply moving insight or laughing out loud at an unexpected turn of phrase, they will always feel uplifted, illuminated, and enchanted by the wisdom of Frederick Buechner.

Blog -- A Word a day to keep the Demons away  Jun 30, 2006
Frederick Keeps the Demons away by insightful, provactive, ideas! What poignant inspired 365 words for another year!

From the Intriguing...darkness, EZEKIEL, Gomer... to music,
mystery & MYSTICISM: Music is all about increasing ones's growth to listening! Mystery is about "Beginning with Words" as Robert Frost is Quoted: "We begin poetry with words that cause a lump to form in the throat." Mysticism is the place for beginning of Religions!

"A popular view has it that what Ezekiel realy saw were Flying Saucers! Then all of a sudden from way up in the air his Voice came down... He thought he'd seen the Glory of GOD!"

After descibing the Vision of DRY BONES, "Ezekiel heard the Voice asking him to tell the ISRAELITES--with GOD in the wings--even though it would be curtains For Sure, the way they were heading... the curtains that goes down in New Haven is also the curtain that goes up on the marvelous new rewrite that hits BROADWAY like a ton of bricks!

As far as is known, nobody's ever stepped out of a UFO and made a statement like that!" All this says what an imaginative creative writer is our neat friend, Fredric the Great! from Retired Chaplain-Rabbi Fred-E Hood
A Welcome Compilation  Jul 6, 2004
Buechner has done something that will be taken two different ways: he has either fallen into the self-aggrandizing trap of repackaging "old stuff" for new potential market, or has (as I prefer to think) made more accessible three wonderful works through the convenience of a single cover. These gems are alternately thought-provoking, humorous, spiritual, and wonderfully human.

Anyone who is familiar with Buechner's autobiographical musings (or the way they are woven into his novel characters) will recognize this as variation on a theme, an art at which Buechner is master. And for the market-driven pragmatists of the world...what a great gift idea!
