  • Good morning,

    I will be teaching a creative writing course at Ohio Christian University this fall. Do you have a recommendation for a good creative writing textbook? The class will be 1:15, two days a week for 15 weeks. It’s a new course that I am currently putting together.

    Thanks for your help,
    Dennis

      Hi Dennis, tell me a bit more about the class. An Introduction to Christian Writing by Ethel Herr would be a very good overall view of the Christian writing market, but may not be the “creative” angle you want. My books Communicate to Change Lives and Writers on Writing are used at Taylor University, but–again–address writing for publication

  • Bob, Good is good all the time; all the time, God is good!, Lindenberger here. I would just like to say all good reading and all articles help me with my walk with Jesus. Thank you for trusting and obeying the Holy Spirit to help a poor beggar like me. (Witnessing is one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread).
