Next week, Lorehaven Magazine will no longer be a single-issue project.

Lord willing, this Monday, July 9, subscribers will receive their access to the all-new, bigger, better, and great-book-stuffed digital copy of Lorehaven Magazine’s summer 2018 issue.

Our mission, shared by many of the same creatives behind Speculative Faith, remains this:

  • To find truth in fantastic stories.
  • To offer flash reviews of Christian-made, fantastical genre novels.
  • To encourage Christians everywhere to enjoy and discern these stories together.
  • To share amazing articles about seeing fantastical stories as our Savior sees them.

We hope God will use Lorehaven to help his Church explore fantastical stories for his glory. We hope he will use Lorehaven to “reboot” the Church’s love for fiction in a biblical way. Not just by thinking about fiction. Not just by complaining about bad fiction. And not even just by thinking and planning and training one another to write fiction. (That’s Realm Makers’s job!) But by finding, buying, reading, and loving the best stories by the best creators.

Creators who specifically want to glorify God by sharing stories created by his people.
