Item description for A Way with Words: Finding Wonder and Meaning in the Language of Life by John C. Bowling...
Overview "A Way with Words" examines the powerful words people use in their lives, both positive and negative. People see, hear, and say words and their effect on others can be considerable. What do the terms hope, adversity, fear, family and worship mean? This book challenges readers to take a fresh look at their language and ask what it can teach them and how they can use it as a better tool.
Publishers Description The words featured in this book haven't been selected from a dictionary and aren't part of a vocabulary list. A litany of life's most trenchant words, they form a language that rolls into our existence, defining moments and giving reality to our convictions. Every term is a telescope to see beyond ourselves and a microscope for looking within. The words are essays, functioning as mirrors and assisting us in coming to terms with life. And together, in this book, they reveal understanding, wisdom and faith. Paper.
