I've tried to "like" Christian fiction.
I'm not talking about Narnia where the message is couched in allegory. No. I'm talking about the pablum that gets served up by contemporary Christian writers who see the world (or, perhaps more truthfully, their publishers see the world) as a sugar-coated, no one swears, namby pamby, smiley-faced place.
There's obviously a market for that kind of story. To those who like their Christian fiction sweet, have at it and enjoy. To those who write that kind of story because certain publishers will only pick you if you follow the rules, enjoy.
I'm not your audience.
I want the grit. I want the protagonist to struggle with these ideas of Good and Evil, to make them real. A lot of people curse. A lot of people are violent and nasty. I want to see them struggle. Give me the grit so the characters are forced into decisions they may not be ready to make yet. That's okay. Show me how people struggle in their own lives.
That's the kind of Christian fiction I want to read. If that's the kind of story you write, tell me about it and share a link to your book.
