The book is very structured and is aimed at the Christian writer in general and the Christian writer who is focussed on the Christian market.The book is divided into 4 sections and has multiple entries by each of the authors in each section.
- Section 1 is entitled: Getting Started. Can I?
- Section 2 is The Joyful Grind.
- Section 3 is I give up! Too Many Rejections.
- And section 4 is Getting "It" Right: The Proper Perspective.
Each section has further structure. It starts with a quotation from scripture. The an anecdote from the author of the entry. Then a prayer and reflection and finally quotations to inspire you. The structure makes it almost ideal for use as a devotional.
Also included are additional sections: On Our Bookshelves- Favorite Must-Haves, a Bible quotations reference, Plan Your Next Escape! What's your reading pleasure? And finally, an index of the other quotations in the book is included.
The book could be a useful tool for someone in the right mind frame. From the synopsis: "More than a how-to, this confidence-building book is designed to draw readers to a closer relationship with God." I believe it can achieve that goal. The entries are mostly interesting. I do think it would work best digested slowly such as a devotional. I can also see it being useful choosing an entry by title for whatever situation arises. I gave this book 3 stars out of 5. Interesting, but definitely for a niche market.
