Item Description...
Overview
In Wishful Thinking, the first book in his much-loved lexical trilogy, Frederick Buechner puts the language of God, the universe, and the human spirit under his wry linguistic microscope. In his often ironic and always keen-sighted reflections on such terms as agnostic, envy, love, and sin, he invited us to look at theses everyday words in new and enlightening ways. Freshly revised and expanded for this edition, Wishful Thinking is a "beguiling" [Time] adventure in language for the restless believer, the doubter, and all who love words.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
very helpful book  Jan 9, 2007
a very good book for "seekers" and those who think they have already "found."
 
A Christian's view of philosophy.  Jan 4, 2007
This is a book for those who require their Christian beliefs to be confirmed and supported.
Not in my opinion a work that will provide any balanced explanation of metaphysical philosophies.
I would suggest that a true exploration in to faith should begin with a good understanding of many theological perspectives, not something that I found in this book.
 
Upbeat and profound  Mar 21, 2006
This little book by Fred Buechner is a gem. It's crisp, hopeful Christian theology. It's an upbeat page-turner, but it is not dumb-downed for the masses. I keep going back to my dog-eared 1974 original version of this book by my bedside. I bought the updated paperback version both as gifts and as a traveling companion.
 
continually thought provoking  Feb 18, 2006
This book is so much fun. Buechner writes so well and thinks so clearly. It's a kind of iconoclastic dictionary. He invites us to look at words, concepts and articles of faith differently and to shatter the platitudes-all by giving short definitions of the terms we use every day as people of faith.

I've found it especially useful when writing or preparing sermons as a way to get out of the box and see a text or a concept differently with a twist. Essential for the thinking preacher
 
A treasure of a book  Oct 28, 2005
This was the first book by Frederick Buechner I have read, and I have already ordered more.
It's a quick read, yet full of little treasures. I enjoyed some of his thoughts so much that I made a list of favorites while reading, so I could go back and read those parts again, such as "homelessness".
Written in a style that should prove an easy read for all, I found it thought provoking and heart warming.
