Whistling in the Dark: An ABC Theologizedby Frederick Buechner
Synopses & Reviews
Awry and thought-provoking jaunt through the spiritual terrain of our everyday language — a lexion of uncommon insight to jar the mind and nourish the soul. "I think of faith as a kind of whistling in the dark, because in much the same way," writes Buechner, "it helps to give us courage and to hold the shadows at bay."
Now in paperback: a wry, thought-provoking jaunt through the spiritual terrain of our everyday language--a lexicon of uncommon insight to jar the mind and nourish the soul. "Compelling and imaginative . . . uncovers bright patches of light and discloses wry kernels of wisdom and insight".--Chicago Tribune. 60 line drawings.
