Both a wonderful introduction to Lewis's thinking and a wise and insightful guide to key topics in the Christian life, these are truly words to live by.
Author: C. S. Lewis
Publisher: Harper Collins
C. S. Lewis is a beloved writer and thinker and arguably the most important Christian intellectual of the twentieth century. His groundbreaking children's series The Chronicles of Narnia, lucid nonfiction titles such as Mere Christianity and The Problem of Pain, and thought-provoking fiction, including The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce, have become trusted companions for millions of readers. Here Lewis breathes new life into words and concepts that have dulled through time and familiarity, and his writings inevitably provoke deep thought and surprising revelations. Words to Live By contains an unprecedented selection of Lewis's writings, drawing from his most popular works, but also from his volumes of letters and his lesser-known essays and poems. His works are presented in accessible selections covering subjects from A to Z, including beauty, character, confession, doubt, family, holiness, and religion. Both a wonderful introduction to Lewis's thinking and a wise and insightful guide to key topics in the Christian life, these are truly words to live by.

The words we use and live by have a life of their own. They come, they go, they change. Learn what certain words mean in Scripture, and learn to live by the Word of God. Words, both written and spoken, allow us to communicate, but we do not always read or hear them in the same way. Meanings change over time, and some words really do lose something in translation. What does Abba, Father mean? What is edification? Knowing what words like fellowship, hope, and redeem mean will give you a better understanding of biblical teaching on salvation and Christian living.

“Failure is often the consequence of daring to touch the stars, but on those few occasions when the stars are touched the world brightens from their luster.” This book comprises the philosophies, quotes, lists, and stories that have influenced my life. Whether the journeys traveled to the highest mountains or to the lowest valleys, these philosophies have inspired me to never give in and never give up on that which is my destiny. These lists have served as the strategies and playbooks to guide my actions at home and at work. Finally, these stories have reminded me that no matter the victory or loss, greatness is within my grasp if I work hard and do the right thing. My profound hope is that the philosophies and stories that have influenced my life will inspire you to create the philosophies and stories that will influence your own. Live your own life, not mine, but create the philosophies and lists that will serve as the roadmap for your journey, and the inspiration for when the light flickers along that path. Time is fleeting and boulders impede nearly every road you travel, but for those that can conquer their insecurities, overcome their burdens, do what is right, and live a decent and honorable life, the possibilities are limitless. You may not write the great American novel or shape the history that will define your generation, but you will surely live a life of excitement and adventure, and along the way – in some small way – make a difference in the world in which you lived. If this book inspires just one person to journey along that path, I am eternally grateful.

I know that it is hard to believe, but these proverbs are in a way blessings to me from God.I had never planned to write these proverbs Whenever I thought about certain issues of my life,a certain proverb would come to mind, and I would jot down. Sometimes I even got the callings without a reason to write anything down, but I wrote them anyways. I dont know how to explain it, but these proverbs are accomplishments of God through me to the world at its present age. I hope you read even a small portion of this book in order to grasp, enjoy and profit from it. What Im here to present you is a gift from God through me to the world.

Words to Live By is an insightful look into selected passages from the Gospels. Deacon Tremmel challenges conventional wisdom to bring out unique ways to understand the fundamental questions we ask regarding what it means to be a Christian. It is an excellent, yet very different follow-up to his first book, The Four Gospels.
None of us is guaranteed to live through tomorrow, and there is no secret knowledge on things we can or might do or avoid to make our lives easier or have purpose. Many people in our society who search for meaning in life and find none turn to drugs, alcohol, materialism, or power. Moreover, Islam is growing in popularity among the young and poor of the world, with many turning to the violent side of Islam. Our society and nation is experiencing moral decay with no easy solutions. Those who choose to follow Christ are seeing the beginning of persecution, as society is trying to silence any knowledge of Jesus. In this book there are several passages from Scripture, along with commentary on each, that we should consider and act upon, as they deal with many of the basic issues of life that we all must face as we go forward in life.

THE MIRANDA WARNING is typical of the kinds of words that my father used to collect in the scrapbook he labeled “The Words People Live By.
Author: Brian Burrell
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
At one time, this nation held a profound and simple faith in the power of words. Today we have become so engulfed in public cynicism that the whole notion of "words to live by" seems to us impossibly naive. Brian Burrell's splendid collection shows that many of the phrases we once lived by can still have resonance today. A comprehensive, fascinating treasure trove of American common sense and whimsy, The Words We Live By presents a sentimental rediscovery of a lost era in American history. From fraternal loyalty oaths to marriage vows, corporate mottoes to monument inscriptions, Ben Franklin to Henry Ford, Americans for generations have committed their most cherished ideals to print, often in charming and plain-spoken language that perfectly represents our provincial, pragmatic, and romantic national character. Burrell's work was inspired by his father, an obsessive collector of words and a chronic nostalgia buff who traveled widely with his family, introducing them to the landmarks, monuments, and other symbols of America's past. Throughout his life, he clipped or wrote down memorable phrases, quotes, mottoes, and quips, both the silly and the profound, the playful and the maudlin. Burrell has lovingly compiled his father's collection of scrapbooks, complementing them with extraordinary research into the origins of America's civic ethics, to produce a truly memorable and inspirational work of historical reference. More than just a compendium of classic American wit and wisdom, The Words We Live By brings this material to life with poignantly told stories, forgotten anecdotes, and deeply considered meditations on the meaning of the words that have shaped the American nation.

The Words We Live By takes an entertaining and informative look at America's most important historical document, now with discussions on new rulings on hot button issues such as immigration, gay marriage, gun control, and affirmative action. In The Words We Live By, Linda Monk probes the idea that the Constitution may seem to offer cut-and-dried answers to questions regarding personal rights, but the interpretations of this hallowed document are nearly infinite. For example, in the debate over gun control, does "the right of the people to bear arms" as stated in the Second Amendment pertain to individual citizens or regulated militias? What do scholars say? Should the Internet be regulated and censored, or does this impinge on the freedom of speech as defined in the First Amendment? These and other issues vary depending on the interpretation of the Constitution. Through entertaining and informative annotations, The Words We Live By offers a new way of looking at the Constitution. Its pages reflect a critical, respectful and appreciative look at one of history's greatest documents. The Words We Live By is filled with a rich and engaging historical perspective along with enough surprises and fascinating facts and illustrations to prove that your Constitution is a living -- and entertaining -- document. Updated now for the first time, The Words We Live By continues to take an entertaining and informative look at America's most important historical document, now with discussions on new rulings on hot button issues such as immigration, gay marriage, and affirmative action.
