Winsome Wisdom
provides 366 meditations -- one for each day of the year. Each reading spotlights a single thought for the day, amplified by a short reflection and concluding with an affirmation that distills the message into a single sentence with a positive application for everyday life. Erdahl draws on the foundational principles that have shaped his own life as he shares sage advice on a wide range of topics ranging from marriage to money, from science to sex, from writing to war. Winsome Wisdom is an excellent source of illustrations for speeches or sermons, as well as an instructive source of daily devotional reading -- and this remarkable book is sure to appeal to anyone seeking to be nourished by its generous helpings of spiritual guidance and practical experience.

Erdahl's reflections are marked by a strong concern for justice and peace. He sees that the Bible and Christianity are both personal and political.... In addition to its clear witness to radical grace, this book contains an abundance of practical wisdom concerning almost all aspects of daily living, including getting along together, married life, sexual fulfillment, decision-making, time and money management, and much more.
