In recent decades, the contested areas of English usage have grown both larger and more numerous. English speakers argue about whether we should say man or humanity, fisher or fisherman; whether we ought to speak of people as being disabled, or challenged, or differently abled; whether it is acceptable to say that’s so gay. More generally, we ask, can we use language in ways that avoid giving expression to prejudices embedded within it? Can the words we use help us point a way towards a better world? Can we ask such questions with appropriate seriousness while remaining open-minded—and while retaining our sense of humor? To all these questions this concise and user-friendly guide answers yes, while offering clear-headed discussions of many of the key issues.

If your success at work or in school depends on your ability to communicate persuasively in writing, you'll want to get Good with Words.

Working with Words

Is this a condition for being good applicable only to this young man? Or is Jesus
suggesting anyone who wants to be good must be dispossessed? Moreover
what finally does following Jesus have to do with the one alone who is good?

The crucial challenge for theology is that when it is read the reader thinks, "This is true." Recognizing claims that are "true" enables readers to identify an honest expression of life's complexities. The trick is to show that theological claims--the words that must be used to speak of God--are necessary if the theologian is to speak honestly of the complexities of life. The worst betrayal of the task of theology comes when the theologian fears that the words he or she must use are not necessary. This new collection of essays, lectures, and sermons by Stanley Hauerwas is focused on the central challenge, risk, and difficulty of this necessity--working with words about God. The task of theology is to help us do things with words. "God" is not a word peculiar to theology, but if "God" is a word to be properly used by Christians, the word must be disciplined by Christian practice. It should, therefore, not be surprising that, like any word, we must learn how to say "God."

Words of a Good Shepherd provides a glimpse into the life and ministry-and a collection of inspirational messages, writings, and speeches-of Dr. Otis L. Hairston, a social justice advocate and dedicated servant of God. The timeless and relevant messages speak to the hearts of those in need and encourage those in despair. This book is truly a gift and inspiration for a seminary student, a young preacher, or any Christian who seeks to understand the life of a fellow humble Christian servant. Inspirational Messages for Daily Living Powerful Spiritual Life Lessons Uplifting Ministries An Invaluable Manual for Pulpit Search Committees The Reverend Otis L. Hairston Sr. (1918-2000) was a visionary and man before his time, never satisfied to sit on the sidelines of history, but compelled to use his gifts, talents, and skills to serve God and others. Otis L. Hairston Sr. graduated with a bachelor's degree in journalism and later was awarded an honorary doctor of divinity degree from Shaw University. He served as pastor at Brookston Baptist Church in Henderson, NC, for eight years and at Shiloh Baptist Church in Greensboro, NC, for thirty-two years. In 1981, Governor James B. Hunt conferred the Order of the Long Leaf Pine upon him with the order of Ambassador Extraordinary. He was awarded the 1983 Brotherhood Citation by the Greensboro chapter of the NCCJ and in 1994 was enrolled in the Book of Golden Deeds by the Greensboro Exchange Club.

"This book walks readers through the writing process to help them develop powerful and personal eulogies based on time-honored strategies. It also teaches readers how to deliver the eulogy effectively. Good Words is full of useful information about eulogies, such as: how and when to include children in the ceremony, how to write eulogies for difficult situations like suicide or strained relationships, how to revise and polish a eulogy after the funeral or memorial ceremony, and how various religious perspectives from a wide variety of spiritual traditions might influence the eulogy." --

"[Hewett] provides generously varied approaches to living with the death of a loved one, reflecting her belief that grief is a process that connects body, mind and spirit. . . . The book is designed to provide an array of constructive, creative ways for mourners to spend their time as they move toward adjustment and reconciliation. . . . [R]eaders may select the ones most compatible with their own beliefs and lifestyles." --Kirkus Indie Review When grief hits, we hurt. What can we do about the pain of grief? Dr. Hewett explains that grief and mourning are not the same thing--grief is passive (it happens to us) and mourning is active (we do something with the grief). More Good Words: Practical Activities for Mourning teaches that grief is deeply related to love. It encompasses a broad spectrum of emotions as a reaction to a loss like death. Mourning occurs through a wide range of actions that we can take to work with that grief. Viewing grief as a hopeful journey rather than an obstacle, this book uses five realms of experience--emotional, spiritual, physical, cognitive, and social--to provide concrete mourning activities that address grief and lead to hope for healing. These activities are ones that readers can do as provided or adapt to fit their own unique circumstances and grief. The book ends with a discussion of practical ways to connect with our dying family members and friends, as well as specific actions we can take to help our families mourn when we eventually die. More Good Words looks honestly at grief and mourning in North America and offers hope for walking that necessary journey.

How to sound like you're from here, no matter where you are in America "Simultaneously full of witty asides and linguistic erudition, Wicked Good Words is one of those rare books that you will read too fast and will find yourself wishing you could read for the first time all over again." -Ammon Shea, author of Reading the OED "As someone who grew up in the land of wicked pissa Sox games, what a delight it was to read about alligator pears, sundogs, piggling, sad cakes, doodinkus, jacklegs, and so many other American regionalisms." -David Wolman, author of Righting the Mother Tongue Wicked Good Words is a collection of words and phrases from places across the United States. Organized by region and peppered with engaging sidebars, it's a uniquely American road trip. You'll discover: *In Ohio, that titillating talk about a four-way is all about a type of chili. *When you rush the growler in Appalachia, you're filling your lunch pail with beer. *A frog strangler in the South will send you running for cover: it's a heavy rain. *In Louisiana and Texas, someone caught pirooting is nosing around. *In the Northwest, something that's spendy is too expensive. *A skeeter hawk, darning needle, snake feeder, spindle, ear sewer, needle, snake doctor, and stinger all refer to the same thing: a mosquito, depending on where you get attacked.

“My name is Ken and I will be your waiter for a long, long time . . .” That’s how Ken Untener introduced himself to the more than 6,000 people who attended his ordination as bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw, Michigan, on November 24, 1980. The purpose of this book is to let Ken Untener tell the story of his vocation, priesthood, and ministry in his own words. And (ever the teacher), he often used stories of his life as a way to deliver a message from the Scripture and the strength of his faith. This book is not a memoir. Ken did a lot of preaching and rarely used a prepared text, but often recorded his homilies and talks on a microcassette recorder tucked in his pocket. He spoke from his heart and he used examples from everyday life, sometimes even using an incident that had just happened to him that day.

Every week for the past twelve years Bouchier has plucked a topic from the chaos of ordinary life and subjected it to his special brand of ironic scrutiny.
