Getting to know A Gentle Whisper author
Josh Pinkston


Q: How did A Gentle Whisper come about?
A: Elijah's story in 1 Kings 19 has been a source of comfort and inspiration to me for many years. As painful circumstances come into and go from my life, it is a great consolation to see how they aren't an infliction caused by a manipulative god. Elijah's story has helped me see God as Christ reveals Him: With Us.

Q: How long did writing it take you?
A: Well, I was in the midst of writing another book when hit a wall towards its conclusion that sent me into a creative tailspin. [laughs] A month later, A Gentle Whisper kind of poured out of me over the course of about 6 months. Having talked about it at retreats and camps that I've directed was very helpful.

Q: So, does that me we can expect another book soon?
A: I don't know about soon, but I am working hard on a few different subjects that I'm pretty excited about. I hope one of them might be finished sooner rather than later.
