One of the first things I think many Christian spec-fic authors do when beginning a new story is deciding how they will be portraying our relationship with God in their new world. Will their tale stick to showcasing principles and morality consistent with God’s character, or will they showcase our relationship to him in a more up-front manner?
Neither of these paths are wrong, nor are the many various shades in between. But we do have to decide which fits the story and what we want to accomplish through the tale best.
Think back on the stories you have read? How have your favorite speculative stories portrayed God and His Truth in their worlds?
