    I’ve never seen the issue here. I’ve read plenty of stuff in the secular arena that had great Christian messages/thoughts. Gosh, remember the Mitford books? I’m pretty sure they had a secular publisher (Amazon says Penguin Group). The fourth book had the most wonderful picture of a man coming to Christ at Christmas. It remains one of my favorite Christmas stories.


    Plenty of believers write for the secular market. But it takes a good writer to articulate Christian beliefs while also giving other points of view a hearing.

    I think it’s a positive change. As C.S. Lewis said, “The world does not need more Christian writers–it needs more good writers and composers who are Christian.”

    It’s also great when an author can do both (write mainstream AND more overtly Christian books), because their mainstream readers may become more open to picking up one of their “Christian” titles.

What do you think?
