Story Craft

A non fiction book by

In his new book, "Story Craft: Reflections On Faith, Culture, and Writing By the Author of Hank the Cowdog", John R. Erickson addresses the question: "What is a story, and what is it supposed to do?" After receiving hundreds of letters from teachers and parents regarding his popular children's book series, Hank the Cowdog, he began to realize that his actual business was not books, but "spiritual nourishment." According to Erickson, good stories nourish the human spirit, and it doesn't happen by accident. In Part One of "Story Craft", Erickson describes his experiences as an apprentice writer and publisher. In Part Two, he attempts to define what a story should be and how it relates to culture and religious faith. And, in Part Three, he gives helpful, practical advice to aspiring writers. The book includes an introduction by Dr. Gene Edward Veith, noted writer and provost of Patrick Henry College, and a foreword by theologian Nancy Pearcey, author of Total Truth.
