The author is suggesting what we say can have deadly consequences. This is the main message of the book, using ‘fire’ as an analogy to spread the word of how much our tongue can spread damaging messages. This book is parallel to the Scripture, as the author teaches us that the “fine art of holding our tongue” is best when silent if intimidated or when we’re angry for example. Silence is key when we feel we have something critical to say that can have damaging effects.

Our voices can be heard when we aren’t near certain people, but as it is today, in social media, our voices will be heard no matter where we live and can spread like wild fire. Critical as it sounds, this book teaches us the biblical sense of the “tongue” and how we use it. We can either say it, or simply keep it shut, as to prevent those wild fires. In other words, without hurting someone’s feelings or somebody taking you out of context, this book will illustrate how.

Women are the true gossipers between men and women, but by learning how and when to say it, it can have better meaning. Simply speaking out without thinking about what is being said, in a sense, can hurt and cause tremendous amount of pain to those they are directed to. This book will teach women the appropriate way to speak. Speaking like a lady in accordance with Scriptures. It’s a must read for those Christian-based women who need a little help in learning how to hold their tongues when they need to most.
