In Writing and the Spirit, Kuhlken speaks with all the ease of a friend on your couch. An ingenius, multiple-PhD-holding, wise-man sort of friend, if you have one of those. His observations from the world about us, writers in history and his own experience (failures and triumphs) combine to form an insightful, relevant work for all writers of faith.
He examines the (inner and outer) confrontations all writers must engage with in order to produce meaningful work. Among them are the nature of inspiration, imagination, and how not to be a hack. He also covers the downright nitty-gritty of the thing - the practical conditions that we all strive for and against in order to produce works in which, as he's noted elsewhere, "the words sing."
This is an all-around handbook of writerly wisdom that anyone who - like the subtitle notes - hopes to change the world, must read.
