Literary Ambition

by S. M. Hutchens

All his daily labor should, for the believer, be understood as casting his bread upon the waters—seeking immortality in it only so far as God thinks it good to grant in the mortality of what passes away. An author's greatest ambition should be to produce work the enemies of Truth are at pains to seek out and burn.

S. M. Hutchens is a Touchstone senior editor.
