John Piper, Sinclair Ferguson, Mark Driscoll, and otherleaders from Desiring God's 2008 conference examine thelife-altering power of our words and their impact in sharing thegospel
Words carry immeasurable significance: The universe was createdwith a word; Jesus healed and cast out demons with a word; rulershave risen and fallen by their words; Christians have worshipedthrough words of song, confession, and preaching. Even in ourtechnological age, politics, education, business, and relationshipscenter on words.
Since the tongue is such a powerful force-for good or evil-weare wise to ask: What would homes, churches, schools, even thepublic square be like if we used words with Christianintentionality and eloquence? The Power of Words and the Wonderof God seeks to answer this difficult question. In thesechapters, derived from Desiring God's 2008 national conference, John Piper, Sinclair Ferguson, and Mark Driscoll team with worshippastor Bob Kauflin, ministry leader Paul Tripp, and literatureprofessor Daniel Taylor to help readers harness their tongues andappropriately command their silences for the glory of God and theministry of the gospel.
