The Art and Skill of Writing Podcast

James and Jonathan welcome Pierce Taylor Hibbs. He’s the associate director of the Center for Theological Writing at Westminster Theological Seminary.  

Through the years, Pierce felt that writing was not only a profession--one, in which, he was trained—but also a vocation and calling, especially when combined with theology. Pierce relates his personal experience of discerning that calling on his life and shares some encouragement for others who wish to become better writers as well. What is the purpose of writing? What are some of the dangers and temptations that may come with the task?
