CovenanTalk : Words That Set Us Free
CovenanTalk, Words That Set Us Free, tells how God's Word uses the power of everyday language to lead us through life's hard places. Although he was raised in a loving Christian home, the author reveals that, as a child of five years old, a visiting relative sexually abused him. Shelton eases the tension with humor and insight into the nature of God's covenant love, as he recalls the impact the abuse had on his life. Eventually finding comfort and hope in his faith, the author takes the reader on a journey from the pastoral surroundings of his boyhood home to the breathtaking beauty of Appalachia and Yosemite. Using common, everyday words and heaven-spun expressions, Shelton extends hope to readers experiencing any sort of trauma. Originally written as a collection of essays, CovenanTalk has developed into a memoir that reveals the healing power of language.
