One of this week’s best new book releases is:
Adorning the Dark:
Thoughts on Community, Calling, and the Mystery of Making
Paperback: B&H, 2019
[ Amazon ] [ Kindle ]
In Adorning the Dark, Andrew describes six principles for the writing life:
- serving the work
- serving the audience
- and community
Through stories from his own journey, Andrew Peterson shows how these principles are not merely helpful for writers and artists, but for anyone interested in imitating the way the Creator interacts with his creation.
This book is both a memoir of Andrew’s journey and a handbook for artists, written in the hope that his story will provide encouragement to others stumbling along in pursuit of a calling to adorn the dark with the light of Christ.
