Creativity for Christians by Sheilah Vance with Reverend Felicia Howard (The Elevator Group, ISBN 9780982038420, Sept 2010, $15.95) is a writing book for Christians wanting to share their personal testimony. I received an advance, unedited, copy of the book that Vance describes the workshop as “…not just a writing exercise, it’s a bonding exercise.”

Creativity for Christians by Shelia Vance | Book Review by Dana Pittman

The book has a unique format; Vance shares her personal testimony, the Creativity for Christians workshop format and exercises, and stories from students that participated in her workshops.

I found the book informative and the personal stories were inspirational. However, I would have enjoyed reading the workshop information apart from the testimonies. It also seemed as if I was rushed through the creative writing aspect of the book.

I believe this book is ideal for church program directors. They could use the book to create a wonderful workshop for their congregation.

Reading “Creativity for Christians” took me back to my childhood when church service included testimonies. It was powerful then and a workshop based on this book is definitely relevant now.
