Product Description

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 this often ironic and always keen-sighted reflections on such terms as agnostic, envy, love, and sin, he invites us to look at these 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.
