In "Wishful Thinking," the first book in his much-loved lexical trilogy, Frederick Buechner puts the language of God, the universe, and the human spirit under his wry linguistic microscope. In his often ironic and always keen-sighted reflections on such terms as "agnostic, envy, love, " and "sin," he invited us to look at theses everyday words in new and enlightening ways. Freshly revised and expanded for this edition, "Wishful Thinking" is a "beguiling" "Time"] adventure in language for the restless believer, the doubter, and all who love words.
