Chuck Colson on the Renaissance of Christian Fiction

In his recent Breakpoint Commentary titled, Modern-Day Renaissance, Charles Colson writes of the resurgence of quality Christian fiction. He cites several examples, and goes on to explain how poor Christian fiction has been in recent years.

"The state of Christian fiction was so poor for a while that most Christians have forgotten what a rich heritage we actually have in fiction, from the likes of Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Austen, O’Connor, and so many more. These writers understood that moral literature is one of the most important ways of transmitting Christian truth."

Perhaps Christian fiction writers are at last rediscovering the art of true storytelling.
