WRITING AND THE SPIRIT


How To Change The World



KEN KUHLKEN


PRAISE FOR WRITING AND THE SPIRIT


The themes of Ken Kuhlken’s vignettes kept drawing me in: being humble in writing, being generous with giving yourself away, getting quiet in order to write, and how to create a masterpiece that will change someone’s life.” — Philip Yancey, award-winning author of over 20 books, including Where Is God When It Hurts? and What’s So Amazing about Grace? philipyancey.com

In Writing and the Spirit, Ken 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’.
