Item Description...
The capacity of words to influence us is undeniable. More than simple arrangements of the alphabet, words can convey our very identities and what is most important to us. As such, it is imperative that we recognize their power, appreciate their beauty, and use them effectively. Perhaps at no other time in history have people been more sensitive to the incredible power of words both to heal and to hurt. An otherwise innocent word strategically or mistakenly placed by a public figure can cause overnight disenchantment and loss of support. Other words become faddish, seeming to break down walls and create a sense of acceptance and infinite tolerance until they are so overused we often forget their true meaning. Author John C. Bowling has written this collection of essays wherein a series of words is brought to life. This is not a vocabulary list, but a litany of some of life's most trenchant words. He has selected these words, not from a dictionary, but from life itself. Each word can be a telescope to see beyond ourselves and a microscope for looking within. Take a new look at some familiar words - and find fresh wonder and meaning in your walk with the Lord.

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.
