Karen Spears Zacharias is a born storyteller, and that is why I want to commend to you her new book Where’s Your Jesus Now?. I became aware of Karen at our local Barnes & Noble when I happened one evening […]

A Tip for Writers

posted by xscot mcknight

Read good writers. This is perhaps not said enough: we write more like the people we read than we perhaps know. Those who read all academic textbooks and reference books, as both undergrads and grads tend to do, are influenced […]
