I am a Christian and a fiction writer (not published yet). Lately I have been reading a lot of Christian fiction and trying to get a feel for what exactly qualifies. I still have only read a few CF authors, but I have been thinking a lot about what it would take to turn my writing in this direction. I am not a theologian by any means, but the stories I write are mostly about healing. I just want to know what the criteria is for calling it Christian fiction. Does a character have to find faith? Or is it Christian fiction just if God and faith are talked about? Is there anything that can't be in there?
Any direction on this would be greatly appreciated.
