The Future of Christian Fiction
Thanks to a post by Mike Duran (Eric Wilson's Open Letter to Readers, Writers, and Publishers of Christian Fiction) at Novel Journey, I discovered this thought-provoking piece written by Eric Wilson, "Is it Time for Christian Fiction to Die?" As someone who continuously searches for Christian fiction that dares to get messy, I found many of Wilson's observations all too true. I'm not seeking the end of Christian fiction, but I do hope that it opens its doors to authors who dare to challenge readers and not just offer escape.
