Is Christian Fiction Improving?
I keep hearing that Christian fiction is getting better, but someone has yet to prove it to me. Last week I downloaded a Christian mystery novel by a well-known author and was horrified at the terrible plot and mediocre writing.
Tim Challies wrote a post about "The Ultimate Christian Novel" which would be called Cassidy: Amish Vampiress of the Tribulation. He meant it as a joke, but, honestly, the book I read had an outlandish premise, a wimpy heroine and way too much blood. Sadly, it was not a parody.
