‘Redeeming How We Talk’ more of a textbook


Redeeming How We Talk: Discover How Communication Fuels Our Growth, Shapes Our Relationships,  and Changes Our LivesKen Wytsma and A.J. Swoboda’s “Redeeming How We Talk” reads like a textbook for theologians.  If you read the back cover, you will be misled. This is not a book that will necessarily help you reflect on what you say and how to say it better. It won’t guide you into speaking encouragement into others lives nor will it teach you how to speak truth in love.

Instead, if you read it long enough, you will learn how communication has changed with the advances in technology, onset of social media and our ever-changing culture.

To be honest, this book is rather boring. It contains some helpful information, but trudging through the words is just plain work–more work than it should be to read.  Some may find this book beneficial, but the average person will more than likely put it down after the first chapter.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Moody Publishers, as part of their Book Review Blogger Program. I was not required to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
