Item description for Talking the Walk: Letting Christian Language Live Again by Marva Dawn...

Father. Hell. Atonement. Discipleship. Let's be honest, these words haven't been winning any popularity contests lately. In fact, they have become strangely embattled in today's conversations about faith--variously ignored, overused, or flat-out misunderstood. Besides, hasn't culture taught that "Father" is exclusive, "community" promotes conformity, and "doctrine" is intellectually naive? In her probing new book, Marva Dawn challenges these assumptions, encouraging readers to ponder these embattled words, and indeed all words, before they dismiss them. Dawn looks at the significance of this language in the history of the Christian faith, arguing that words are events and the ways in which they are spoken can influence other's behavior. As she eloquently argues, "churches cannot flourish if the names are corrupted."

Reviews - What do customers think about Talking the Walk: Letting Christian Language Live Again?

Meditating on significant topics  May 20, 2006
Talking the Walk is a most interesting little volume and highly recommended. The chapters are short, meditation like, and yet frequently profound. There is no specific reason for the selection of the terms discussed but most are concepts that have been the focus of debate among Christians. In fact, Dawn often initiates the discussion by rehearsing opposing perspectives (e.g. liberal, conservative; modern, historical) before attempting to seek some middle ground. But her "middle" is usually cause for greater reflection. While recapturing some of the theological weight of key doctrines she attempts to view each concept in light of current developments but with a clear biblical focus. Dawn's leanings are obvious (e.g. feminism, pacifism) but not overt. The book is refreshing.
