"If ever a book were needed, it is this one. And if ever a book delivered far, far more than even its publisher and promotional materials promised, it is this one. Here, gathered in one carefully organized manual and delivered in one clear, personable, experienced voice, is essentially everything anybody ever needs to know about writing in the field of religion and spirituality. I cannot praise it too highly."
- Paula Huston, author of The Holy Way, Simplifying the Soul, and A Season of Mystery
- Tim Muldoon, author of The Ignatian Workout and Longing to Love
- Michael Leach, Publisher Emeritus of Orbis Books
Vinita shares wisdom garnered over long years as an author, an editor, a life-teacher and, most importantly of all, a deeply reflective and compassionate human being. To work under her guidance is far more than an editing process – it is a privileged and evolving relationship between editor, author and text. I am delighted that through the pages of this book, many more people will be encouraged to venture more confidently and knowledgably into the pathways of publication. Essential and enjoyable reading for every aspiring writer."
- Margaret Silf, author of Just Call Me Lopez, The Other Side of Chaos, and Inner Compass
- Amy Andrews, author of Love & Salt

"The publishing world is full of drivel," he said. "We don't need more empty words. What we need are men and women who write authentically from the overflow of a full life." (Convicting much?)
Then he recommended I read "The Art of Spiritual Writing," by Vinita Hampton Wright, and I ordered it that same night. (Because yes, I needed to hear those words even if they weren't directed at me.)
Friends, this is the single best book I've ever read on spiritual writing. This is the book I wish someone had given me 10 years ago as an English student. This is the book I would have given myself even 3 years ago when I started my ministry blog. This is the book I would place in the hands of every aspiring writer I know.
Get it. Read it. Highlight it and scribble notes in it. And if your child or sibling or friend dreams of writing words that change the world, then get it for them. They (and their future readers for generations to come) will thank you.
