Dennis Tedlock presents startling new methods for transcribing, translating, and interpreting oral performance that carry wide implications for all areas of the spoken arts. Moreover, he reveals how the categories and concepts of poetics and hermeneutics based in Western literary traditions cannot be carried over in their entirety to the spoken arts of other cultures but require extensive reevaluation.

Many struggle to live a victorious life as a result of their ignorance of the potency, which the Spoken Word carries. Challenges are made to be faced, but it is only revelation and incessant confession of God’s Word that is capable of making any man triumphant. The Spoken Word is 365 days devotional, exploring all areas of life, and revealing the power of God to heal, transform, enrich and bless. This devotional is released by God in this season to satisfy the hunger of men, heal the broken hearted, liberate the captives, and empower the weak. Who would ever believe that the wisest man – Solomon, was born out of the erroneous affair of David and Bathsheba? In this case, the author recounts, “From the shells of total shame, and from the marrows of the utmost disgrace, God can still birth fame” When you think all is over, and when you have given up to an ill fate; God will start something fabulously new in your life.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will hurt me until the day I die. I dedicate this work to the clients of my forty-six years of therapy and pastoral work who have shared their pain and sorrow inflicted by words. No wound is more difficult to overcome than the wound caused by words. Love is destroyed by words. Families are separated by words. Young lives are placed on roads that lead to dead-ends and destructions by words. Careers are ended, reputations are lost and wars are begun all because of words. To the many who have suffered so greatly I pray this book will help others understand your pain. Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a word spoken in right circumstances. (Proverbs 23:11 New American Standard Bible)

The words you use are tools of communication. However, it’s the way you use them that has the real power. When you have an optimistic frame of mind, you’re far more likely to recognize opportunities when they arise. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. The way you use and choose words defines who you are. Words have power. God created the world with words. The Bible plainly says, we shall decree a thing and it shall be established. Are you ready to harness the real power of spoken words?

FROM SPOKEN WORDS TO SACRED TEXTS is assured of becoming a reliable, clear-cut resource for generations of Bible students to come. The Greek New Testament was copied and recopied by hand for 1,500 years. Regardless of those scribes who had worked very hard to be faithful in their copying, errors crept into the text. How can we be confident that what we have today is the Word of God? FROM SPOKEN WORDS TO SACRED TEXTS introduces its readers to New Testament textual studies of the Greek New Testament. Herein the reader will find plain language as Edward D. Andrews gives the reader an in-depth view of the history of the New Testament. We will discover how the New Testament books were transmitted. The intentional and unintentional scribal errors that crept into the text for some 1,500 years of corruption by copyists, followed by over 400 years of restoration work by textual scholars who gave their entire lives to give us today a restored New Testament text. In this book, the reader will gain an appreciation for the vast work that has been carried out in preserving the text of the New Testament and finding renewed confidence in its reliability. Andrews' work on FROM SPOKEN WORDS TO SACRED TEXTS was carried out with an apologetical mindset to assist Christians in their defense of God's Word.

I've read Ephesians 2:10 a bunch of times and I knew I was His"workmanship", but I never knew it meant "poems"...That means I exemplify God's creative brilliance and passion. I'm not just a lay member...That rings in my spirit like just somebody just played cymbals...Never staunch in my spirit, I stay limber...Created to cut down demons and blush when I hear Jesus say timber...I have been ordained to lumberjack organisms that insist on staying sinful...Paul Bunyan and that blue ox-- the way I pull revelation out of scripture...And it's all because God opened my understanding that I'm able to give you select scriptures to fit ya...Death to all unrighteousness, it has been sealed with a kiss...I could be called God's best poem, because none before ever lived a life that rhymed like this...So embedded, I look up to the abyss...And I've been given the exact same Power to create poetical masterpieces that was used to bring light to the dark...He stays brooding over my paper, that's why my pen always starts to spark...
