“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
“Writing and the Spirit is a handbook of writerly wisdom that anyone who hopes to change the world must read. Ken Kuhlken speaks with all the ease of a friend on your couch. An ingenius, multiple-PhD-holding, wise-man sort of friend, in case you have one of those. The pages are rich with observations from the world about us, writers in history and his own experience (failures and triumphs). 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 our art.
