Christian Fiction Authors

1 Comment

Christian Fiction is an increasingly popular segment of the publishing world, with many well-known and best-selling authors christian fictionthat appeal to a wide variety of readers.  Christian Fiction encompasses many subgenres…romance, mysteries, westerns, historical fiction, “gentle reads”, “chick lit”, novels that focus on a particular religious order or community, and just regular realistic fiction.  Authors range from formative classics–Lloyd Douglas, Taylor Caldwell, Catherine Marshall–to contemporary bestsellers–Karen Kingsbury, Jan Karon, T. Davis Bunn, Tim LaHaye.  Some authors are “gentle reads”; some are not.  The common thread among these varying forms is the resolution of narrative conflict through Christian principles.
