Bestselling novelist Bret Lott makes it clear in the opening pages of LETTERS & LIFE that he is a Christian and active follower of Jesus Christ. The first chapter begins with the Apostle's Creed. In this nonfiction book, Lott has many insights for writers. For example in the chapter "On Precision," he writes, "One of my credos is a quote from the American photographer Walker Evans, a quote I think so highly of that I used it as the epigraph to my own book on writing, "Stare," Evans wrote. "It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long." (Page 51)
You will want to read and re-read these words for inspiration and insight in to the writing life as a Christian. I highly recommend LETTERS & LIFE.
