Light from Distant Stars is a Godsend. In the real world, we need more than platitudes or devotionals to help us heal. Instead, to start imagining our way through any family trauma, in the light of our Father and his truly good gifts, we need more fierce and compassionate stories like this one. . . .
“As a kid, you wonder if there really are gnomes or fairies, and you think you see them,” [novelist Shawn Smucker] said. “I really enjoy reading and writing stories that could be true, even though they’re fantastical . . . creating something that happens in this real world, but challenges the boundaries between real and magical or fantastical.” . . .
This biblical book of songs and poetry was written by contemplative, agonizing, creative people. Their passionate thoughts of anger, praise, despair, and joy were all given God’s stamp of approval. The psalmists get real, and God both welcomes and invites this realism.
Some psalms stand out to me as being especially applicable to geeks, given our strengths, weaknesses, and temperaments. . . .
Many parents who don’t read the same books as their children aren’t aware of the amount of sexual content in modern young adult (YA) fiction.
Christian freedom allows for us all to draw the line in different places. But regardless of where your family places that barrier, books’ themes about sex and lust can challenge us about what we worship—either God or our own passions. . . .
