"What is a story, and what is it supposed to do?" Many budding writers have asked this very question and have struggled to find a satisfactory response. In his newest book, Story Craft, Mr. John Erickson seeks to address this issue, providing writers with a springboard of information from which to create their stories and hone their craft.
Who is John Erickson?
According to Dr. Gene Veith, Patrick Henry College Provost and well-known cultural commentator, “Mr. Erickson teaches writing as a craft, which is the classical approach, not in the modern vein as a vehicle for romantic self-indulgence. (He) shows a better way, one that can teach Christians how to be the writers, artists, and culture-makers that gave us Western civilization.”
Part One of the book describes Erickson's experiences as an apprentice writer and publisher. In Part Two, he attempts to define what a story should be, and how it relates to culture and religious faith. And in Part Three, he gives helpful, practical advice to aspiring writers.

It is Patrick Henry College and Mr. Erickson’s fond hope that Story Craft will offer guidance and encouragement to writers and also to any individual seeking to influence culture today.
