Christianity and Literature

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! Finally, someone talking about modern Christian writing and it's lack of artistry.

A special thanks to Jeffrey Overstreet at Looking Closer Journal for taking a look at the connection of faith and artistry every day. This is such a necessary thing. And as always there is Matt at Millinerd who looks at iconic work and finds the sacred.

That's an excellent article (particularly the part about Left Behind, I still can't believe the poor construction of those books)
A plea to those who agree.
Buy more books that combine faith and artistry! Change the market! The reason that the current CBD catalogues are so saturated with indistinguishable prairie romances is probably because they sell.

And for those than have the time and desire, write one. Write the next Perelandra or Phantastes. It may not work, it may not even get published, but at least your mind will have been sharpened and sanctified by the process. And if that effort helps change the landscape, so much the better.
