But the first title that came to mind when I read this question was an older story: Whispers by Robin Jones Gunn, which was first published in around 1995. But even after almost thirty years, I can still remember most … The post Bookish Question #334 | Have you read a Christian novel that features a character on holiday? appeared first on Iola Goulton ..read more

I read all the Narnia books as a child, but they were never specifically written or marketed as Christian fiction, so I don’t think they count. I also read and enjoyed Joni by Joni Eareckson in my early teens (so only a few years after it was first published in 1976). That’s definitely Christian, but … The post Bookish Question #333 | What’s the first Christian novel you remember reading? appeared first on Iola Goulton ..read more
