What is Christian fiction?

One of my blog readers emailed me and asked me to define Christian fiction. “Is it a story that doesn’t go directly against any Biblical teaching? Does the story have to teach some Christian lesson? Is it simply a story without all of the gratuitous sex and violence of the natural world?”


I picked up an ebook at Amazon for my Kindle for a few dollars. It was tagged as “Christian Fiction,” and it looked like a nice romance with a supernatural element, just what I want to read.

I got into the book, and found it to be well written, with well developed characters and prose that kept the story moving. Then we got to the romance part, and WHEW! too steamy for me!
