Latest Virtual Club | The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe
If you’ve been around my library block of books, you know my stories are a mixture of three magical ingredients:
- thrilling entertainment
- insights into faith
- inspiration for the journey.
That’s the secret sauce for my own fiction. Should be no surprise that the books I read carry the same kinds of ingredients!
But not always in the ways you may think.
Believe it or not, there’re as much religious elements to plumb and explore in Stephen King’s tales as Ted Dekker’s, or the latest George R.R. Martin epic (when he gets around to finishing it!) as J.R.R. Tolkien, or in Dan Brown’s yarns as Joel Rosenberg’s thrillers.
That’s because good stories plumb the depths of the human condition, in all of its messiness and grittiness, with an eye toward understanding how we got here, where we’re going, and what’s the fix — regardless if they’re marketed as religious fiction.
That’s because at the heart of that condition is the deep longing to reach toward and grasp and know the sacred, in order to make sense of our condition, which our collective stories tap into in some way or another.
So I thought I would try my hand at being a tour guide of such stories — the well-known and and not-so well-known — by hosting a book club that explores the intersection of the sacred and story.
Best of all: It’s free, there’s no catch or gimmick, and you’re invited!
Check out the latest virtual club and join in the conversation down below. I guarantee you’ll be thrilled and entertained and discover some insights into faith—even a little inspiration for the journey.
