I so appreciated Kathy Buswell Nielson's insightful approach to this vital topic. Encouraging, challenging, thought-provoking... above all beneficial in many ways. I look forward to reading more of Nielson's works, and growing in my Christian faith as a result.

Highly recommended!

More theory than "how-to" but good, especially chapters 4-7 and the Genre-Specific Questions in the Appendix.
