Christian fiction doesn’t have to be simpy or saccharine. There are plenty of fantastic faith-based novels that don’t involve Amish people or unrealistic teenage love. Books like Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay and Deadline by Randy Alcorn have a subtle spirituality that is both thought provoking and challenging to one’s faith.
Biblical fiction is a genre all its own in the wide world of Christian literature. There are some good and some bad, but I think it’s a valuable category of books that shouldn’t be ignored. I’m over on Kindred Grace today sharing my favorite biblical fiction authors and novels. The best part? Moody and Tyndale have provided multiple sets of books for a few lucky KG readers. Be sure to comment (on the KG post) for a chance to win!
