Pastor and novelist Zach Bartels1 agrees that more Christian fiction isn’t including specific scenes of characters repenting and believing in Jesus Christ.
But unlike some readers (and writers), Bartels isn’t sure this is a good thing.
You used to be able to feel those coming in decades past (and centuries past, for that matter, going back to Bunyan), even in the work of innovators like Peretti. Now they’re considerably more rare. But why? Is it because we’ve sold out, putting market above principles (not unlike the vague, Bieberish lyrics of many contemporary pop Christian songs)?
