"Called to Write" A Book Review
From Amazon: Called to Write will inspire you to either pick up the art of writing or will affirm your calling to write for the kingdom of God. Written by two award-winning and widely published authors and writing coaches, the book is filled with wisdom about how to keep your writing in line with the heart of God. 

Authors Edna Ellison and Linda Gilden present seven key competencies every author needs to be a writer on a mission.

I found this book to be comprehensive in the subject matter regarding a Christian's call to write.  It covers the necessity to have a solid Christian worldview and includes the practical aspect of the mechanics of writing. It includes discussion questions and exercises at the end of each chapter, and a writer's prayer as well. I found the chapter called Developing Strong Personal Connections particularly helpful in instructing and inspiring true connections with readers.

Scripture references and editing tips abound in this book. It is inspiring and affirming to this Christian writer.

Along these same lines, and also highly recommended is Writing in Obedience, by Terry Burns and Linda W. Yezak.
