Welcome to Faith 'n Fiction Saturday! If this is your first time participating, please read this post. It will tell you everything you need to know!
Christian fiction is generally known for being clean and non-offensive, but lately there's been a lot of chatter about edgy Christian fiction and the need for Christian fiction to be more realistic. Christian fiction has certainly changed and contains a lot more edge than it used to. This makes some readers uncomfortable and I was wondering what you line is? What would push the envelope too far for a Christian fiction novel for you? Language? Sex? Violence? Main characters who never believe in Jesus?
If you came across something that offended you in a Christian fiction book, how would you handle it?
I don't want to see any foul language in Christian fiction books but bleeping them out like Lisa Samson did in The Passion of Mary Margaret is okay because it rings true. I don't ever want a sex scene described for me, and think we've pretty much gone as far as we should in that area. I am already uncomfortable at times with the violence...there seems to be a general idea that it's okay for Christians to kill bad guys which I kind of disagree with.
However, I have never done anything about that other than tell people or make comments about it on my blog. :)
