CHRISTIN DITCHFIELD, a popular conference speaker, is the author of more than fifty books, including Crossways Take It To Heart and The Three Wise Women. Host of the internationally syndicated radio program Take It To Heart!, she holds a masters degree in biblical theology from Southwestern University.
Christin Ditchfields A Way with Words: What Women Should Know about the Power They Possess is a book that deals with the influence words have on females. Throughout the book, Ditchfield addresses the use and misuse of language in our Christian journeys. The author uses Scripture and other examples, both personal and those of famous people, to discuss the effects and possibilities of using our words for Gods glory or to our own ends.
A Way with Words highlights the different ways words impact us and the people around us, specifically with those within the body of Christ. The book is written as an admonition to believers to be mindful of how they use their words, and it outlines the different uses of words in detail. Ditchfield uses extensive Scripture passages to show the gravity of how we use language. In the book of James, for example, it reminds believers that the tongue is like the rudder to the body and, thus, should be steered carefully. Frequent quotes break up the text, and study questions at the end of every chapter enhance the themes shared in each chapter. The author shares her knowledge of women and language gained through years of mentoring women, writing research articles, and speaking at conferences.
Ditchfield explains that words should be used to glorify God and further the kingdom. She supports this by discussing words of encouragement, admonition, advice, criticism, analysis, comfort, wisdom, experience, and even humor.
The book itself is well written and easily understood. I thoroughly enjoyed the examples and the use of supportive Scripture. The author gets right to the point without making apologies for her stands. The book has no denominational bent, therefore, is appropriate for a wide range of audiences. Christian women who are not afraid to be challenged in their faith or habits will enjoy this book tremendously. Alexis Warner, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
