Christian Chicklit list

Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.30.2005

Update 2/2006: I have a more current version of this list on my website, and I'll keep updating it there.

Man, a cold hit me hard yesterday and today I’m miserable. Bad, bad coughing. I read, but it was a bad book—illogical character decisions just ruin the story for me. I think I’ll do crits today instead of writing.

I keep a list of Christian Chicklit books that are out there (it’s current as of today’s date, anyway). I didn’t think it would be useful to anybody else besides me, but then someone requested Christian Chicklit titles on the ACFW loop.

Some of these I’ve read. Some I haven’t, but I’ve heard about them from friends. Here it is for anybody who’s interested. It’s not in any particular order.

  2. If you are looking for another book to read, I have one that I recommend highly.

    The book is titled "The Fall of Lucifer", written by Wendy Alec.

    The book opens with the three Angelic brothers, Lucifer, Michael and Gabriel, in heaven before the fall. Over the course of the book, the essence of the angels is developed. The controversy arises when God created man to be higher than the angels, in that we are created in the image of God. Lucifer was embittered to the point of rebellion.

    Various historical events are incorporated, and the plot offers the perspective of an angel into the events. The novel develops the beauty of heaven and the grotesque quality of hell, the depths of evil, and the beauty of grace. It communicates these themes through beautiful imagery and an intriguing plot. The beautiful imagery would make for amazing scenery!

    This is a fast read, 300 page novel that is consuming to the imagination and penetrating to the heart. I hope they make this book into a movie. It would be amazing. If you have time, I hope you enjoy it!
