Publisher's Summary

The Epistle of James says that anyone who considers him - or herself to be religious yet does not tame his tongue is self deceived. James says that such a person's religion is worthless. On the other hand, James refers to the person who tames his or her tongue as a perfect person. That's a stark contrast. There's a big difference between being a self-deceived person engaging in worthless religious practice, and being perfect or complete. If we take these words of the Bible seriously, we need to start taking our own words far more seriously then we normally do. 

Words of blessing and cursing in scripture do not merely express benevolent hopes or malevolent wishes; instead, they actually accomplish and ensure the very reward, good or evil, which they promise. 

Taming the tongue is one of the major concerns in Jewish teachings about ethical conduct (mussar). Jewish law strictly forbids gossip, slander, deprecating language, and all types of derogatory remarks. 

This audiobook, Taming the Tongue, adds to Judaism's ongoing conversation about the laws and principles of proper speech from a slightly different angle. This audiobook contributes to the conversation from a Messianic Jewish perspective, bringing to bear the powerful teachings of Yeshua and the apostles.

Waste of a credit

I could have gotten the same thing if I had looked up the word tongue in a concordance. Thus far, he is just reading a bunch of scriptures. No insight is offered.

I was hoping it would get in some rabbinic insight into evil speech. Terrible!
