A Great Quote on Christian Writing


“All life, high and low, sordid and noble, vile and pure, is the province of art. Surely if the Bible is to be our standard we must admit that nothing lay outside the province of the inspired writers. A Christian writer cannot be a significant writer if his vision does not include the whole of human life, the depths of depravity as well as the heights of aspiration.”

(James Wesley Ingles, from “The Christian Novel and Evangelical Dilemma”)

That is a very good quote indeed.

(Incidentally, this is Razz. :) Thanks to a creepy stalker, I had to leave my old journal.)

A good quote that is largely ignored in the Christian fiction genre.

More detailed explanation in my comments to that post.
