Grace is most needed and best understood in the midst of sin, suffering, and brokenness. Christians live every day by the grace of God. We receive forgiveness according to the riches of God’s grace, and grace drives our sanctification. We live in a world of earning, deserving, and merit, and these result in judgment. That is why everyone wants and needs grace. Only grace makes alive. A shorthand for what grace is - mercy, not merit. Paul tells us, the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives (Titus 2:11).

John Leax has written a book for beginning as well as experienced writers. It's his testimony about writing, along with the testimony of other writers. Leax writes out of a Christian worldview and gives reasons for a vocation some might believe is a fruitless endeavor--creative writing.

Great book for the Christian writer.

Leax is, along with Luci Shaw, one of the forerunners of the contemporary Christian writing community, and is a remarkable voice: if you are a person of faith, a seeker, and a writer, you must read this book.
