Thomas Merton once wrote: "Writing is a form of contemplation." Exquisitely written, Writing Tides embodies Groff's passion to help anyone discover contemplative insights through personal reflections, practical notes, or work-related writing.

Whether they write for personal reflection or for others, they will find that this book helps deepen the creative process by finding meaning and mystery in ordinary notes or analytical essays, prose or poetry, sermons or lectures, music or lyrics, committee minutes or family stories.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Encouragement and Inspiration  Feb 15, 2008
Kent Ira Groff, while using swimming as the primary methaphor, has given the reader multiple metaphors for thinking differently about writing. Through the four stages of swimming, he presents the reader with a new way to understand lectio divina. One insight for me was his idea that "writing exposes your thoughts and . . . leads you to know your inner self."

The exercises he provides are as varied as the multiple intelligences approach and understanding he includes. Whether you are an aspiring writer or have enjoyed writing to learn, Groff has something for you in this book. Further, he helps the reader see writing as a spiritual practice.
 
Enthusiastic Recommendation  Feb 9, 2008
Groff shares his experience to inspire and inform the reader. The writing exercises are concrete and original. I find that inviting God into the creative process keeps me honest. Having a writing companion in your journey helps combat the isolation a writer can feel while working. Groff is a compassionate coach. This book is easily read, but doing the work will challenge any thoughtful writer. The author tells us: "writing has the potential of calling forth the spiritual dimension that can unlock the treasure of your life's purpose." Who wouldn't want that opportunity? Don't miss it!
 
Disappointment Supreme  Aug 5, 2007
I waited anxiously for my delivery of this book, as I had great hopes after reading the subject of the book. I was expecting something of spiritual inspiration. After reading the book, I was supremely disappointed, because I found absolutely nothing of spiritual value at all. Being a writer myself, and working on a similar book, I expected to get some inspiration for my own book. The only help I got was to think that if I can't do better than that, I will scrap the script before it ever goes to the "Printer". I hope the "Author", Kent, got some satisfaction in the Writing of it!
 
Writing Tides and me  Aug 3, 2007
Hello
I am going to write a short review of the book that I purchased from you in that you asked me to do so.

I am an freelance writer in Longmont, Colorado and a Christian who believes that strong christian writing has a place in our society. I am currently working on church history, evangelism and the politics of church and state. I formerly taught United States Government on the high school level and my religion was taught me by my Southern Baptist father during my formative years.

This book has taught me much about the organization of writing. he also mentions several resource items that I have in my possession.

Since the author lives in Denver, I would very much like to meet him to discuss writing.

Harold G. "Bill" Sears
