    This was, hands down, one of the best books I have read about the power of our words and the ripple affect they have on our lives and those around us. Tony Evans doesn't mince words, and is very direct in his teaching, with scripture after scripture referencing each point. It's not an easy book to read, but the amount of growth obtained is worth every moment spent as one examines one's own life through the pages of this book. In Genesis 1, God created with His words.

    I agree with the general message of the book - don’t be a jerk, watch what comes out of your mouth, the mouth reflects what’s in the heart. The writing was just horrible! I understand it wasn’t meant for literary prestige and is supposed to be readable by a wide variety in audience. But still! It was repetitive, formulaic, and just simple. Again, I agree with the message and it was nice to be reminded of it.

    In the book Watch Your Mouth, author and Pastor Tony Evans, writes about the power of our words. This is a very practical guide with great stories and illustrations. Evans writes: “Many believers today place a high value on church attendance, spiritual activity, prayers before meals, or any number of things. But James says there is one way to determine whether you are a mature believer—by noticing what comes out of your mouth.” I would highly recommend this book to challenge anyone speech and walk In the book Watch Your Mouth, author and Pastor Tony Evans, writes about the power of our words.

I received a copy of this e-book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The power of the tongue When you realise the power that your tongue possess, you become extremely careful of how you use it. I learnt to use my tongue for good, to encourage, to speak words of love and blessing to my family . To shy away from speaking badly to those who mistreat me.

    Power of the Tongue This book should be required reading for all Christians. We tend to make distinctions on levels of sin especially in our words but Tony Evans sets us straight on our wrong thinking and makes us face up to the many ways our words are death to others and ourselves.

    Tony Evans does a thorough study of our speech and why it's important. His excellent ulcerations help to bring the subject matter home for the reader. I highly recommend reading this if you have any trouble with your speech as a Christian. It highlights areas in every aspect of your life that will touch your heart and call you to action.

    "Speak life with your lips and watch life come about. When God wanted to create something, He used words. When Satan wanted to destroy something, he used words. Both of them used words in order to exercise their power." Lord, set up a guard for my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips." PS.141:3. "Speak life with your lips and watch life come about.

    The book was excellent! As an extremely verbose person, I sometimes forget the power that the things I say have on my own life as well as the lives of others. This book was an awesome reminder that as Christians, we have to watch what we say. I also just enjoyed the cadence of his writing. Nicely put together!

    This is a quick and easy read, but power book on the words we say. Dr. Tony Evans really laid out the importance of “watching our mouths” and how failing not to can negatively affect our relationship with Christ and each other. I throughly enjoyed the book from beginning to end. I high recommend this book to anyone who may lead with their mouth and not their heart. So good. Key Chapters: 1. Dynamite in Your Dentures 11. Satan in Your Speech 12. Dirt in Your Discourse

    Liked very much I enjoyed this book. As Christians, we tend to speak thinking that everything we say is of God. But we really do have to watch our mouths and trust God to guide us in our speech.

    This was the best book! Definitely a must read again and what was good was that there were ways to apply what we need to do. It sure makes an impact. I so like Tony Evans and am thankful for his books!

    Great read with lessons and principles that are easy to apply with great examples to what not applying will do to yourself, current relationships and most importantly, your relationship with God. Highly recommend for those that want to live a life that is pleasing and glorifying to God.

    Tony Evans is a profound theologist and will step on your toes as a Christian. However, I can't get past the grammatical errors. Tony Evans is a profound theologist and will step on your toes as a Christian. However, I can't get past the grammatical errors.

    4.5 - did this as a bible study. It is a great book that reminds us how our words can hurt, harm or heal. Speech is powerful for both good and bad. Plenty of Scriptural references included.

    Filed with biblical truth and references, this is a very simple and straightforward teaching on your words and the power they can have for good or harm. The author expounds many biblical illustrations of the tongue and adds many more helpful anecdotes.

    Conclusion: "So make it your mission to use your mouth to speak blessings and not curses. Bless your family around the dinner table, encourage your mate regularly in your marriage, speak life and not death in your friends and enemies alike. And if speaking the truth requires you to say something challenging to someone, make sure you communicate your positive desire that the truth you speak will set them free"(166).

    Read and taught this for our group Bible study. On the one hand, it's a great book--a good, fairly inclusive overview of how Christians are called handle their speech, both good and bad. I wish it had spent a little less time on strange and obviously made-up anecdotes and spent a little more time digging into scripture, but there are a lot of very good reminders and teachable moments throughout the book.
