Testimony by Thomas G. Long

Book Description

In this groundbreaking book, Thomas G. Long a theologian and respected authority on preaching explores how Christians talk when they are not in church. Testimony breaks the stained-glass image of religious language to show how ordinary talking in our everyday lives-- talk across the backyard fence, talk with our kids, talk about politics and the events of the day--can be sacred speech. In a world of spin, slick marketing, mindless chatter, and easy deceptions, Testimony shows that the hunger for truthful, meaningful, and compassionate speech is ultimately grounded in truth about God.
