What does success look like for Christian authors?

Here are the show notes for the most recent episode of the Christian Publishing Show.

You can listen to this episode here.


As authors, it is easy to get destination fever, where we are so focused on the destination that we fail to enjoy the journey. What does it mean to be a success as a Christian author? Should we measure ourselves the same way secular authors measure themselves? 

To help us answer this question, we will be talking with the bestselling and Christy hall-of-fame author James L. Rubart.

    As a measure of success
    an aeroplane would be nice,
    and in an ancient rusted mess
    God took my advice.
    It came upon a flatbed truck,
    and had not flown in scores of years;
    and after I had hailed my luck,
    I sat down and had five beers.
    Now will come the endless days
    of cut, replace, and mend,
    making skills of bygone days,
    and their tools, my friends,
    for when God’s word we try to heed
    He will give us what we need.
