Christian Supernatural Fiction

I'm reading Wendy Alec's book "The Fall of Lucifer." Has anyone read it? Any thoughts on Christian alternatives to books like Harry Potter? What do you think about Christian supernatural fiction?

Hi Helen :) I personally have written a lot of Christian fiction because God gave me the ability to do it and I hope and pray I've been used by God in a few readers' lives. It's so much fun for me to write the stories and I think I grow spiritually as I'm writing them too--learning a lot lol :)

At one time, I had a basement full of Christian books. I gave most of them away and some I threw in the trash.
Once I read them, I wasn't interested in them again. I also found that there's only so much time in a day. The positive return from the Word of God exceeds the return from a multitude of views, opinions and interpretations. The Bible warns about ever learning and never being able to come to the knowledge of the Truth.

I have no interest in Christian "supernatural" fiction. Time would be much better spent in reading God's word. I wonder why somebody who is a Christian writes fiction.

Hi. I googled Christian supernatual fiction and got your blog. I'm an avid Christian fiction reader and reviewer, especially of suspense/thrillers.

You all should try out Melanie Wells, Eric Wilson, and Kathryn Mackel. Do you think there is a need for a website on this?

I would stay away from it. Why would you want to mix the truth with fiction?

Canda, I am reading a Beverly Lewis book right now, The Covenant. It is very good.

With my busy schedule I save my valuable reading time for the Bible. For those who have more time I don't think there is anything wrong with extra Christian reading as long as you are familiar enough with the Bible to spot hints at false doctrine. I feel that a person who reads alot of extra material before completely reading the Bible is in danger of taking as "gospel" what is written without weighing it against scripture.

The only fictional books or novels I read are from Beverly Lewis on the Amish family, beyond that I read the bible, I donot read anything "supernaturally" even if based on fiction because as far as harry potter etc, I don't read anything dealing with ghosts or mediums. Anything dealing with Satan is already in the bible.

I haven't read The Fall of Lucifer, but I agree with others about F.P. I've read a few of his books and so have my kids. Mystery and suspence have always been my favorites! And Eloy, just because we read Christian fiction, doesn't mean we don't serve the Lord, we read our Bibles too.

Frank Peretti is an amazing writer, even his books for kids and teens are really good.
---bethie on 1/4/06

I love Peritti's books. I also make a point of reading "The Screwtape Letters" about once a year. I also have it on audio tape read by John Cleese. One of those books that make you go hmmmmmmmmm.

To each his own, i prefer to feed on the Manna from heaven, the Living Holy Bible; and as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

I love Frank Perretti's books too, and the whole Narnia series. (I hear the movie is awesome). I'm one who enjoys fantasy books, and it's good to have alternatives.
---Ann5758 on 1/3/06

Is the book any good? I keep looking at it but I always end up buying something else. There is a couple I think may fall in that category, Chayatocha by Shane Johnson, it's pretty freaky, but clearly shows Christ is Lord of everything. Shadowmancer by GP Taylor, and Black by Tedd Dekker. I kinda enjoyed them.
---bethie on 1/3/06

No I have not read that book. But I simply love anything Frank E Perretti writes. Although novels, there are so many truths in the stories and great insight. They should all be a movie. The Oath is my favorite then I read This Present Darkness and it is my favorite. So it goes with all of his books. He gave a great talk regarding the Columbine shootings.

Has anyone ever read "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis? What about "the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe?"
