Christian Fiction Writers, especially Christian Science Fiction, or Christian Sci-Fi, made their presence known long ago. We have been fortunate, as a community, to see the works of some of the best writers in the Christian arena. Several of the best, and indeed the brightest and most imaginative have long since departed from the scene. John Bunyan was one such writer. Bunyan wrote the now classic work entitled Progress Pilgrim’s work he did while in prison. Perhaps the most gifted and talented of all Christian fiction writers were CS Lewis, who wrote Narnia stories and other outstanding Christian fiction. Works by Lewis has been an indelible mark on the psyche of Christianity forever. Lewis appointed as some would call fantasy, and it probably was, but any story he wrote was much more than that. It was allegorical to point surrounds a person in biblical principles that were inevitable. Lewis Christian Science Fiction stories were capsules good vs. evil at a level that any individual could experience and enjoy.
Of course, there are some people who have downplayed Christian Fiction, and especially any fiction is Christian Science Fiction, or Fantasy, declaring it is not widely used. (Some would even say “the devil.”) Many argue that fiction is doubtful way to present the truth of the Bible, arguing that if someone decides to explain the facts, it would be more practical to produce a simple thesis or dissertation containing these truths. However, this is really the case. Who will look at the works? Thousands upon thousands of readers ignores such erudite tomes. However, they would be much more likely to read a story of amazement fixed on the distant worlds of make-believe. The unvarnished truth of the matter is that Christian Fiction presents a well-established history of documenting the truth of the Bible snuggled in fantasy worlds. They kind of reality, along with the Bible truths presented, are now digested by tens of millions of people, and these people have been done better in these stories.
Christian Science fiction is a genre that has been all but abandoned by Christian writers and publishers. It is unfortunate. This market has been really set aside for Fantasy and futuristic fiction. Much of the reason has been that it seemed very difficult, if not impossible, to squeeze biblical reality this morning is rather mysterious and unknown. Writers are almost always reluctant to move too far from the revealed Bible future. Write about alien beings that are clearly not men and because the roots are hazy can be pretty confusing to a writer who has no desire to have to say about the events that are clearly not be in the Bible future.
drawn up in a Christian Fiction environment, especially a Christian Science Fiction setting, can be difficult because one has a very good grasp of the Bible. If a Christian writer is going to present a narrative that, while lovely and obviously fictional, but delivers a story that can work on Biblical constraints, so one must certainly be better than working knowledge of the Bible. He or she must have read this book, cover to cover. Otherwise, the writer will not know when he or she leaves little else invisible line drawn in the sand time of the Bible.
For example, if a Christian fiction writer hoping to tell the history of the earth where wrong -doing is not available, the writer could easily put his or her story in a span of a thousand-year rule of Christ, Millennium. The event is spoken of in the Bible. One may be long in the imagination of his or her when to tell a story that takes place at the time, or even a story that takes place after the Millennium. However, if the writer begins to tell the evil influence of Satan’s power of those living in the Millennium, the author will have made a serious mistake that will in the long run, cost writer many readers. They should have known that Satan, this time, continues to be limited, and will be imprisoned, for the whole thousand years. After a period of Millennium is completed, the writer is free to burst new universe of possibilities.
If the writer requested to spin novel dealing with spaceships and aliens, that is legitimate fare, and there is nothing in the Bible to deny such speculation (on the opinion of many). A quick reading of the book of Obadiah provides a springboard for the imagination of the writer Christian Science Fiction. It is written there that . “Though you exalt yourself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord” Book Obadiah 1 4. (The Bible) Clearly verse talks about the people who live in the far distant planet, “among the stars.” It strongly suggests space travel. A good writer Christian Sci-Fi, you can take those kinds of suggestions and create entire worlds.
Once again, however, if the author provides a scenario where Earth is totally destroyed by aliens, the writer has run up against strong wall biblical fact. It is not the future described or even suggested scripture. Bible carry some very apocalyptic scenario for the future of the Earth and the human race, even moving so far to represent certain things that tend to be seen as a certain exotic and even spacecraft. One need only read the book of Ezekiel, chapter ten, to obtain an image. However, there is no suggestion in the Bible that the whole world or they will be killed by alien beings. There is a strong suggestion that the aliens, or something like foreigners, the rain murder interact with the world and people. In chapter 9 of Revelation, for example, stated that numerous alien like creatures will come upon the earth and torment men five months. The description of these creatures is “and his horses prepared for battle … and their faces were as the faces of men.”
A Christian Science fiction writer could clear run with the footage. A Christian Sci-Fi story could easily be woven into huge plot of any number of motions and evidence given in the Bible, that would enthrall countless readers. Many folks would read Christian Science Fiction novel, or Christian Fantasy books that would never open the Bible and read the truth embedded there.
And that means more take interest in the Bible things, and in the Bible.
Thus Christian Fiction serves us well.
