Humble Writing

This I going to be short today, because my mind isn’t working so well and because it’s not a point I want to labor too greatly.

I believe CBA Authors’ intent to answer a hypothetical readers’ questions about God, or explain some aspect of God is the antithesis of the way a book should be written.

An author should be setting out with an unlearned lesson, an unproven theory, an unquiet heart. The search that yields the novel, that speaks through the characters’ mouths is the one that will reach the most hearts because it is done through a position of humility.

I don’t know this the author seems to say. Join me and let's see what we can find together.
