With more than 184 Christian writer's groups and 155 conferences, thousands of writers are looking for encouragement and insight. Yet, every Christian who writes faces the same issue: finding daily inspiration and creativity. Designed to be both encouraging and practical, "Writers in the Spirit" guides writers from the novice stage to becoming dedicated authors, something that Carol Rottman achieved when she put aside all other "paying work" to write full time. Included in these pages are insight and practical tips on such topics as: Writing Realism: "Take yet another scroll, and write on it all the former words that were on the first scroll ..." (Jeremiah 36:27). Popular media have romanticized writers' lives to be devoted entirely to making beautiful stories. Writers in the Spirit explains the practical issues that writers face and shows how it is possible to overcome dry spells, endless revisions and even self-doubt. Writing with Fervor: Much of the Apostle Paul's writing was done in prison. Paul's passion to win people to Christ overcame any obstacle. While many new writers feel restrained, Writers in the Spirit shows how to find the passion that fuels the writing process. Writing in the Spirit: "This is what we speak, not words taught by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit ..." (1 Corinthians 2:13). Rottman shows that a personal relationship with God is the best source of inspiration. Mediating on God's word will yield creativity from the Creator. "Many of us are called as witnesses to the life-experiences God has entrusted to us. If your witness takes the form of the written word, this book will go with you as a trusted companion traveling the same path." - Former President Jimmy CarterAuthor, Statesman, and Thirty-ninth President of the United States "'Writers in the Spirit' helps connect me to God while reminding me that writing is a gift from Him and a calling to be both treasured and nurtured."- Sally Stuart, Editor, Christian Writers' Market Guide

The Writing of Spirit

Through a new history of systematic thinking across the humanities and sciences, The Writing of Spirit argues that nineteenth-century historicism wasn’t simply replaced by a more modern synchronic perspective.

Contemporary thought has been profoundly shaped by the early-twentieth-century turn toward synchronic models of explanation, which analyze phenomena as they appear at a single moment, rather than diachronically as they develop through time. But the relationship between time and system remains unexplained by the standard account of this shift. Through a new history of systematic thinking across the humanities and sciences, The Writing of Spirit argues that nineteenth-century historicism wasn’t simply replaced by a more modern synchronic perspective. The structuralist revolution consisted rather in a turn toward time’s absolutely minimal conditions, and thus also toward a new theory of diachrony. Pourciau arrives at this surprising and powerful conclusion through an analysis of language-scientific theories over the course of two centuries, associated with thinkers from Jacob Grimm and Richard Wagner to the Russian Futurists, in domains as disparate as historical linguistics, phonology, acoustics, opera theory, philosophy, poetics, and psychology. The result is a novel contribution to a pressing contemporary question—namely, what role history should play in the interpretation of the present.

"The pen is mightier than the sword." and, "What the world needs is... not just more preachers, but... consecrated pens." Christians have been changing the world with their words and their pens for centuries. But, not everyone is a skilled writer. For those who have a story to tell, an idea to communicate or a word that will inspire others, but feel frustrated that they don't have the skills to effectively communicate, here's a resource tool that will help you to sharpen those writing skills. Writing with Spirit is written for writers of all levels and specifically written with Canadian Christians in mind. So, whether you are a student who needs help writing essays, or are someone who feels God is calling you to share your heart with our world, here's a book to help you do that. "It's finally been written! Lois Sweet has given us the "bible" for Christian writers. No writer or aspiring writer can any longer say they weren't told. Lois Sweet in Writing with Spirit: A Journalistic Guide to Effective Writing not only covers the essentials of good writing but provides concrete examples. This book is not only for journalists and writers but will greatly serve college and seminary students, enabling them to see better how to construct papers and exams." -Brian C Stiller, President Tyndale College-University "Not only well written and thorough, but also acutely necessary. The intellectual high ground has to be challenged by Christian people, and that involves a new, intelligent and far more profound approach to literacy and literature. Here is the resource to help do that." -Michael Coren, Author, Journalist, Radio/TV Host

PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...

This anthology makes accessible to readers ten little-known and under-studied works by seventeenth-century women (edited from manuscript and print) that explore the relationship between spiritual and physical health in the period. Providing a detailed and engaging introduction to the issues confronted when studying women’s writing from this era, the anthology also examines female interpretations of illness, exploring beliefs that toothache and miscarriage could be God’s punishments, but also, paradoxically, that such terrible suffering could be understood as proof that a believer was eternally beloved. The extracts in the anthology explore how illness was an important part of women’s religious conversion, often confirming religious belief, but also how women could advise others about their physical and spiritual health in manuscript and print. The anthology includes a thorough introduction to the period’s medical and religious beliefs, as well as an introduction to contemporary ideas about women’s physical and spiritual make up. Each of the ten extracts also has its own preface, highlighting relevant contexts and further reading, and is fully annotated.
