I’ve been wondering about this
I like to write fiction, and I’m planning on writing some songs… and most of what I write ends up being related to my faith, not even intentionally, but because it’s a big part of who I am.
There are some great Christian writers, like CS Lewis, and some contemporary Christian artists I like, - such as Rich Mullins or Brooke Fraser.
But I’ve noticed that there are Christian books and music that just doesn’t appeal to me, or doesn’t seem to be very good quality (I’m not saying this in an elitist way…and I’d much rather listen to Christian music than much of the secular music that I know)
what do you think is important in (particularly) Christian books or music? what can writers/songwriters do to avoid it being kind of ‘cheesy’, but meaningful?
