This is a great read! I highly recommend it if you need encouragement to start creating or persist with your passion.
It's quick to read - the emphasis is on inspiring you to get going, you're not going to spend a week reading this book wishing you were writing your own instead.
Altrogge's approach is that God is the ultimate creator and we bear his creativity as those made in his image. Whoever we are and whatever we do, we are creative. The book is designed to encourage you to pursue creativity in whatever way that means for you and to do it for God's glory and not to get weighed down by worrying about pleasing people.
I found this uplifting, warm and easy to read. I liked the questions at the end of each chapter and will return to them again to reflect and be inspired.
I came to this book feeling discouraged and disillusioned and finished it feeling I had a new perspective on my creativity and inspired to keep going with less pressure and more joy. I would suggest this to anyone who wants a bargain book that will take about 30 minutes to read and will leave them feeling ready to create and excited about pleasing God through it.
