Christian Fiction Books

When it comes to deciding on what are the best Christian fiction books of all time, the name that comes up the most often is C.S. Lewis. Regarded as one of the best authors of all time, his children's book series The Chronicles of Narnia have transcended above a simple series of books through movies, plays, and television to become a treasured piece of literature for all ages. While most people are familiar with the Narnia books, many do not realize that C.S. Lewis also wrote other books of Christian fiction. In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis takes a different look at what it means to be a Christian by telling a story through the eyes of those trying to corrupt the soul. In the novel, a senior demon named Screwtape mentors his nephew Wormwood on how to secure the damnation of a man known only as the Patient. The story is a series of letters that the uncle sends to the nephew defining what it means to be a typical Christian. Through a satirical look at the temptations and failings of the human soul, Screwtape gives advice to the younger demon on how to undermine faith and promote sin within the Patient. These observations on human nature are sometimes funny and sometimes serious, but offer a unique look at the nature of Man and his role in not only Christian doctrine, but in all endeavors of life. While some considered The Screwtape Letters a book relating only to Christians, it is a novel that truly defines the role of religion in human nature and the importance in understanding humanity.

I love reading about Christianity in terms of stories like Narnia and Lord of the rings. It makes it more ideal and fun especially for people who still need to know more about God.

Though I haven't read his books, my husband did and he said he's a great author. Very inspirational and spiritual.

We have plenty of religious or christian publications, magazines and even podcast offered by our governing body. Those are very informative and I love to listen to it through the website because they have mp3 available too.

I think the only way to understand human origin is by reading and meditating the word of God and that is Bible. I can be misleading when we read christian fiction book. That's my opinion only.
