Why I Wrote Grace–Focused Optimism
C. L. Chase
I wasn’t compelled by external force. No one put a gun to my head and demanded, ‘Write!’
I was impelled by internal coaxing. Love was my muse, sweetly whispering, ‘Write!’
John Bunyan, the Puritan honored for his literary and theological masterpiece The Pilgrim’s Progress, once said that he ‘preached what he did feel, what he did smartingly feel.’
I wrote Grace–Focused Optimism because I did feel its truth. Indeed, I did smartingly feel it.
