Writing parables required for Christian fiction? — 4 Comments

  1. I do occasionally find a novel from a mainstream Christian publisher (or self-published) that doesn’t mention God or Jesus, but still has a strong underlying Christian theme and teaching point. I think some of these could be described as parables.

    Of course, I can’t think of any examples right now!

    I find allegory more common, although these are often too heavy-handed.

    • I agree with you exactly. My concern is learning how to write spirit-anointed parables, like the ones Jesus told. If it was good enough for Him, it should be good for we writers also. I find allegory too “cute”. I can’t find a better word for it.
