Titles

What’s in a title? I’ve read writing books claiming a title can make all the difference in the world.

I’ve been taking out children’s books on earthworms for research. I ordered them on the library computer from inter-library loan. One of the books is written for adults called The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms by Amy Stewart published by Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill, copyrighted in 2004.

On the back flap by Amy Stewart’s photograph, it says she “lives in northern California with her husband, two cats, and several thousand worms.”

If that sentence doesn’t intrigue someone interested in gardening and earthworms, I don’t know what would.

Different book titles of these aforementioned tomes are: Earthworms (Backyard Animals) by Anita Yasuda, The Life Cycle of an Earthworm, by Bobbie Kalman, We Dig Worms – a toon book written and illustrated by Kevin Mc Closkey, and Yucky Worms by Vivian French.

The adult book, The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms, Amy Stewart quotes Darwin and mentions Mother Nature’s creatures. I haven’t read beyond the first page but in the introductory pages she thanks many experts – biologists, botanists, taxonomists and lumps them all together with the word oligochaetologists – to whom she gives the credit for correct terminology and helping to clarify technical information about worms.

I don’t know if they are all evolutionists or not. According to the DVD, “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” from 2008, Ben Stein interviews some scientific professors of Judeo/Christian faith who don’t believe in evolution and have lost their jobs in secular American Universities. Top notch published professors fired because they believe in the Creator of all things.

“Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed,” now there’s a title that grabs attention.

God says to do our work heartily as unto the Lord rather than for men in Col. 3:23. In Col. 3:24 (NIV), it says, “knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.”

That gave me some thoughts. What might you be thinking?

God bless!
