Faith In Fiction

Recently I’ve been reading lots of Christian fiction, and I’ve been struggling through a bunch of them, or I simply see them as childish.

This is compared to the two or three books, I’m currently in the middle of that the authors would not consider to be Christian. I am zipping through them.

I like the occasional Bible verse in a book, I like reading about people who pray, but more than that I like reading about families, about kindness. I like reading about people who help others. I like books that show faith, whether that is the authors plan or not.

Probably my favorite books are the ones where they show faith, but the stories are set in a time period that no matter how strong your faith was or wasn’t you went to church.

I can read the Bible anytime I want. And honestly super long prayers about fictional characters, is a little … uncomfortable.

What are your thoughts?
