The Christian Fiction Conundrum
A debate is simmering as the publishing industry morphs within the internet. Christian fiction has a problem with labeling, marketing and identifying readership. The basic issues are well outlined at She Reads and Books, Movies and Chinese Food. Many of the writer blogs I follow undoubtedly have an opinion post as well.
Raymond Khoury's The Last Templar is a good example of the division within the Christian market. This novel would fall into the #2 camp of Christian fiction being peppered with salty language, gritty circumstances and unclear lines of right and wrong.
