Product Description

This mini-dictionary, written with vintage Buechner wit and insight, is a guide to everyday words and everyday living. ''Faith is a kind of whistling in the dark, it seems to me, and these somewhat antic and most undefinitive definitions are in a way the same thing---an attempt to keep the spirits up while peering through the shadows for some glimmer of Meaning.'' You'll find his uncommon insights will both jar your mind and nourish your soul. 160 pages, softcover from HarperCollins.

Publisher's Description

Awry and thought-provoking jaunt through the spiritual terrain of our everyday language -- a lexion of uncommon insight to jar the mind and nourish the soul. "I think of faith as a kind of whistling in the dark, because in much the same way," writes Buechner, "it helps to give us courage and to hold the shadows at bay."

Editorial Reviews

“Compelling and imaginative...uncovers bright patches of light and discloses wry kernels of wisdom and insight.”
“Entertaining and useful...Buechner is very good at squeezing a lot of reflection into a few sentences...His insights, and expressions of them, are sharp.”
“Ultimate justice would mean that [Buechner’s] books will be found in virtually every literate and civilized household in the United States. That is what he deserves as a writer...A wise and witty book, written with that beauty of style that Buechner readers have learned to expect...Pure delight.”
