The book is separated into three sections. The first section explains that our words do matter. The second section shows us why our words matter and that, if we are going to change our speech, we need to admit our need for help. The last section gives godly advice on how to win the constant struggle with our speech.
The topic of chapter one is how God spoke the creation into being. Chapter two explains how Satan, by way of the serpent, deceived Adam and Eve and how each tried to pass the blame to the others. The focus of chapter three is that the Word of God, Himself, became flesh. There is also another layer to the War of Words. The reason we have a problem with our words is because our hearts are wicked- we are sinners. Chapter four talks about how our words are indicators of what our idols may be. Luke 6:43-46 tells us that there is good fruit and bad fruit and that whatever is in our heart will be what we speak.
I hope that you will consider checking out this book. Paul Tripp gives godly wisdom and sound advice in this volume. It is sure to make you consider your words more carefully!
