In two weeks, I’ve managed to get a hundred plus vetted Christian good reads into the Reality Calling bookstore. These are some seriously enjoyable books showing transformed lives of power in realistic settings from romances to exotic fantasy and science fiction. Some of the spiritual warfare is very realistic. Some is quite Hollywoodish. But in all the Gospel is witnessed.
So, a small start for what I pray is a large work. Please pray for the bookstore, the authors, and readers. If you like it please share it with your friends.
A hundred plus vetted Christian good reads
I know it doesn’t sound like much. But, there is more and more richly Christian fiction being written. Many of the stories are exceptional.
The uniqueness of this bookstore is that we will not carry any book which is not at least redemptive fiction. As you surely know, the vast majority of Christian books are just clean reads with no spiritual content. Many more have religious connections, but no life-changing spiritual Truth.
It’s been really tricky as we have written and rewritten this system because of all the people who get offended. Surely that is the American sin of the new millennium. On the other hand, we are dealing with author’s offspring—so it’s to be understood that they get defensive real easy. Of course, it doesn’t help that I tend to write with a lot of assumptions. Until some tells me, “Hey! That’s really stupid!” I usually just assume everything’s OK.
This second edition eliminates the star-rating system because it confused too many people. We’ll just talk about levels. I hope I have gotten all the denominational traps and pitfalls avoided. But, if you see anything, please let me know.
