Sometimes I forget why I write. Other times I don’t feel like I have to remember. I simply write because it’s a part of who I am.

This book, written by Jerry B. Jenkins, coauthor of the Left Behind Series, will remind you of why you write. Not only will he remind you, but he will help you become a better writer and grow your writing career in ways you could never imagine.

(Jenkins is also a profilific writer, having written over 150 books. He also leads the Christian Writers Guild and teaches Christian writers how to further develop their writing talents.)

This book is far more than Jenkins writing about his experiences as a Christian, or as a writer for that matter. Jenkins combines anecdotes, as well as stories from his life, to show how he developed his writing career, and how, through his faith, he ultimately found his purpose in life: to tell stories that help others. (One thing I learned about Jenkins is that he is an avid baseball fan and wrote about sports for years.)

In fact, that’s how Jenkins got started: writing as a sport writer for the newspapers. As his career developed, he wrote many autobiographies on some of the biggest sports stars of the times.

(One of my favorites was Jenkins story about Chicago Bears Walter Payton. Jenkins told Payton once walked out in front reporters completely naked. Jenkins also reveals some of the training regimen Payton used to become one of the greatest rushers who ever played football.)

Jenkins tell of other stories he wrote about other sports stars and his experiences with them. By the time Jenkins wrote the Left Behind series he had already written over 50 books, many of these sports autobiographies.

One thing I really liked about this book is that Jenkins freely offers a ton of tips on developing your writing career as well as improving your writing. He offers a brief list books for you to read further and help you improve your writing.

There’s also the stories interspersed throughout the book where Jenkins writes about different sports stars he’s written about. This is where Jenkins really comes alive, and you can see his passion for his writing. It really is very enligtening, and it’s hard not to be inspired to write.

It doesn’t matter what you write. It doesn’t matter if you are a Christian or not. If you want to improve your writing, if you want to learn from a master craftsman, and if you want to be inspired, then read this book. It will definitely help you if you follow the advice Jenkins so generously gives.
