First the virtual world, then the real world: you can now join the flagship Lorehaven Book Club today, thanks to the new Lorehaven Book Clubs group.

Unlike other communities, this isn’t a group for writers or “geek culture” in general. Like Lorehaven magazine itself, the Lorehaven Book Clubs mission is to find truth in fantastic stories, reviewing, exploring, and discerning these novels as fans and readers of all ages.

At the moment, anyone can invite anyone. When Lorehaven issue 1 releases, this group will probably take off even faster. (You can sign up here to get early access to this debut issue.)

The Man He Never Was, James L. RubartHere’s what the Lorehaven team, led by book clubs coordinator Steve Rzasa, has planned:

  • Book deals, including the very titles positively reviewed by Lorehaven. For example, we shared a $1.99 ebook offer for James L. Rubart’s latest novel The Man He Never Was.
  • Featured chats, discussion questions, behind-the-scenes, and more, with authors of Lorehaven’s reviewed books. (Our first issue offers twelve reviews, and we’ve already doubled that total for issue 2. If you’re an author, you can submit your own title here.)
  • Articles and tips for taking the book club into reality: your own family, church, or any group where people would love to explore Christian-made fantastical novels together.
  • Updates with new additions to the Lorehaven Library. This powerful resource lists any Christian-made, fantastical-genre novel we can find. And as Lorehaven issues release, each new book listing will appear (if it’s not already listed). Even better, you’ll see at a glance how our review team recommends any particular book, if we’ve reviewed it.
  • Later, we’ll have news and events about real-world book clubs—we hope in your area.
  • We’ll probably share a few spoilers, here and there, from upcoming Lorehaven issues …

Readers and fans, we want to help you find great books and connect with spiritual family.

Authors, we want to help you reach readers who will love the stories you share.

And for publishers, pastors, and ministry leaders, Lorehaven will better reveal these fans’ needs. We don’t want just “entertainment.” We desire great stories, created by spiritual family members, that reveal our Creator’s truths and beauties in new, imaginative ways.

Learn more about the Lorehaven Book Clubs mission here. To join the Lorehaven ministry through prayer, you can start with these Twelve Ways to Pray for Lorehaven Magazine. And of course, sign up to get exclusive access to Lorehaven issue 1, which sits primed on the launch pad, after just a few delays for high winds and such, soon ready to ignite thrusters.

E. Stephen Burnett is coauthor (with Ted Turnau and Jared Moore) of The Pop Culture Parent: Helping Kids Engage Their World for Christ, which will release in spring 2020 from New Growth Press. He also explores biblical truth and fantastic stories as editor in chief of Lorehaven Magazine and writer at Speculative Faith. He has also written for Christianity Today and Christ and Pop Culture. He and his wife, Lacy, live in the Austin area and serve as members of Southern Hills Baptist Church.
