Mirror Of The Heart - A Guide to Christlike Communication
As water reflects a face, so a man's heart reflects the man."-Proverbs 27:19
It is said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. An enduing relationship begins with the first step of effective communication. Because of the power of verbal communication, Charles Gerber urges Christians to carefully monitor their speech. He reminds us that communication can be used for either good or evil purposes. Words will ultimately reveal the heart of the speaker. Knowing the tremendous impact spoken words can have on any relationship, Gerber encourages speech that embodies New Testament teachings. Examples from Scripture- of both positive and negative effects of speech- clarify the picture of what godly speech should or should not be. Jesus Christ himself is examined as the greatest communicator of the Bible. Christ's teachings and conversations provide a perfect model for all Christians.
Engaging anecdotes present the effects of spoken words in a variety of settings. Gerber offers concise, realistic suggestions for improving communication skills and quality in any conversation.
Mirror of the Heart has 13 chapters and 156 pages.
