Few know the topic of wisdom as well as best-selling author and pastor Charles Swindoll. For years, he has been sharing his "insights for living" with millions of listeners to his daily radio show of the same name. Wisdom for the Way collects some of Swindoll's most classic insights into daily bite-size readings. Gleaned from the book of Proverbs, here are wise words for busy people on topics such as contentment, character, work, and worship.
J. Countryman had an enormous hit last year with Max Lucado's devotional Grace for the Moment, which has sold half a million copies and is still going strong. The publisher follows the same gift-book format with Charles Swindoll's Wisdom for the Way: Wise Words for Busy People, using brief snippets from Swindoll's previously published works for a year's worth of daily meditations. Books just don't get much lovelier than this; with its glossy pages, nature-oriented color photographs and embossed cover, Swindoll's devotional is a feast for the eyes as well as the spirit. ( May)
