A quiet, contemplative work, discussing the place of the Writer in his faith, faith's role in his writing, and the writers place in this world as much a part of it as "apart from it", reconciling the creative urge with the faith that drives it.

Having had Professor Leax as my instructor in several classes, I of course imagine him reading this collection of essays and poems, hearing his voice speaking these words to us.

Five stars, though I am biased.

This book was an enjoyable read. It was a reflective story of the author's overall personal journey into writing as his vocation. It does not cover logistics of writing or tips for writing as a vocation or Christian vocation.
