Inciting Incidents Book Review


 About the Book
 We believe there is tremendous power in each person's story.

Inciting Incidents combines the unique stories from eight creatives (artists, musicians, writers, thinkers, and leaders) managing the tensions between their faith, their place in life, and their work as artists. It is a collective call to face life's imperfections and difficulties while attempting to do the great things we all want to do. By capturing this next generation's battle between idealism and reality-which is where so many of us find ourselves existing each day-these storytellers pave the way for a better understanding of those moments that truly shape us.

The reader will be challenged to use their own art and their own life stories to find their way in God's Kingdom. The end result is that God has created each of us, uniquely, and we each have a unique, growing part to play in His Story.

The STORY Conference's Sarah Cunningham is curating stories from Jeff Goins, David Hickman, Blaine Hogan, Tracee Persiko, Alece Ronzino, Tim Schraeder, Mandy Thompson, and David V. Wenzel for this one-of-a-kind collaborative piece of art.

Dealing with topics like anxiety, leadership, creativity, and perfectionism-every creative has much to glean and commiserate within these pages. Find Courage in our Collective Story. (Goodreads)

My Review

After reading the reviews on this book I thought it was not going to be a good book at all.Much to my surprise this turned out to be a great book and exactly what I had expected. This is a book full of people's stories and their pivotal moments in their life. The first is about a man who discovered his compassion to the people on the streets. Each story is completely different and discusses a struggle. There are six stories so it's a pretty small book but I really enjoyed reading how others lives have changed because of God.

"I received this book from Moody Publishers for free in exchange for an honest review."
