Discover why words matter in a noisy world
Technology has made it easier than ever before to share just about everything: pictures, ideas, even the ups and downs of your morning errand run. Yet all our talking doesnt seem to be connecting us the way it promised to. Thats because we dont need to talk more, we need to talk better.
Redeeming How We Talk explores what the Bible has to say about that central aspect of life and relationshipsconversation. The Scriptures show us that words have remarkable powerto create, to bless, to encourage, to forgive. Imagine how we, as Christians, could spark change in our families, churches, and communities if we learned to use words like Jesus did. By weaving together theology, history, and philosophy, Ken Wytsma and A. J. Swoboda help us reclaim the holiness of human speech and the relevance of meaningful conversation in our culture today.
