Anita Saleem, a 25 year old Christian author who was born and raised in Pakistan has recently published a book titled ‘Words: spoken and unspoken forces’. In the book, Ms. Saleem acknowledges that words have power and traces how this power is activated by drawing reference from various fields like psychology, philosophy, medicine, religion and semiotics.
She presents a theoretical model to understand why words affect individuals by suggesting that words color emotions, shape behaviors and affect physiological functioning to create an overall impact (whether positive or negative).
The book quotes several scientific studies to help understand why words are spoken and unspoken forces that have the potential to shape future. The book also has a chapter which covers the Biblical Perspective on the importance of words.
