The Value of Fiction

I read this article by Russell D. Moore, a few days ago and thought I'd share the link here today.

It's a post about the value of reading fiction.


I loved how he explained how important story telling is and how Jesus told stories to get his message across.

Good fiction does this also.

Hop on over to his blog and then, if you like, let me know what you think.

  1. Some reader's think Christian fiction is stereotyped and "all the same," however, it IS challenging and some, inspiring. That is what makes it good reading. :)

    1. I agree. It's sad when people think 'all' Christian fiction as 'fluff.' There are so many great Christian fiction writer out there, like Tracy Higley, Francine Rivers, and Susan Meissner. All their books leave me thinking...they are such gifted storytellers. : )

  3. I love how fiction opens your mind to new worlds, different types of people than you'd normally meet, and ideas that you wouldn't usually think about. It's fascinating!
