The Place of Christian Stories or Fiction

As stated above, Christian fiction is a great way to present a message.

That's a lesson I came to accept later on. When I started writing, I always felt like my efforts were useless. Why tell stories? Why not rather do something useful?

In fact, right from the beginning, it took a prophecy, a word of Knowledge, and a word of Wisdom to convince me to begin writing. Like other writers, I belittled the importance of the art and the talent.

Then I realized that the Master used stories! Parables. And I've come to enjoy writing and praying that my words will touch the heart of someone out there.

I put commentaries on some of the stories to highlight or enlighten on the message.

Read them with an open heart, not just for the entertainment, but let God speak to you through these fiction and fictionalized accounts.
