Some Great Christian Fiction I've Read

Here are some Christian Fiction novels I've read and recommend. The links take you to the book on to support this blog.
My "reviews" are in red.

By Shane Johnson

February 1975 was a cold month---especially for the Apollo 19 crew as they explored the lunar south pole
where the temperature plummets to 334 degrees below zero! Commander Gary Lucas and pilot Charlie Shepherd are searching for crystalline bedrock when tragedy strikes. Can Gary recover from the strange events and return home to share what he discovers about creation? 416 pages, softcover from Waterbrook.

This was a surpisingly excellent book! Deals with pre-flood stuff.

Firebird: The Trilogy
By Kathy Tyers / Bethany House Publishers

Born the "expendable" child of a royal family and caught in a galactic war she doesn't believe in, Lady Firebird Angelo realizes her destiny rests in the hands of her enemy. Will she forsake her heritage for love, or defy mortal danger to wear the crown? A 3-part harmony of spiritually rich science fiction, Tyers's stunning epic burns bright with action, intrigue, and romance! 800 pages, softcover from Bethany.

Pretty good Christian Sci-fi. Set in a universe of the authors creation, where instead of Earth, God created, I think, three worlds where he placed Man. The author wrote several Star Wars novels too!

By James Byron Huggins / Whitaker House Publishers

An ancient adversary prowls the once peaceful halls of Saint Gregory's Abbey in the Italian Alps. Cut off by a sinister snowstorm, the resident monks and visiting tourists fight a raging battle with an unstoppable force. When an ageless holy warrior who's able to stem the bloody evil appears in their midst, they're saved---or are they? 320 pages, hardcover from Whitaker.

Another surprisingly good novel. I'd like to see some of the supporting characters in stories of their own.

The Assignment
By Mark Andrew Olsen / Bethany House Publishers

He's assumed countless identities since the time of Christ. Divinely commissioned to restrain evil, he moves unaging through the ages; a tool of the Spirit who "holds back the lawless man." Immortal, fallible, and overwhelmed with his mission, he has one final chance to oppose the Enemy as humanity teeters on
the brink of WWIII. 400 pages, softcover from Bethany.

Seems like "surprisingly good" is the review of the day!

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings - 4 Volume Boxed Set, Softcovers
By J.R.R. Tolkien

Meet everybody's favorite hobbit, Bilbo Baggins! You'll be captivated by the adventures of Bilbo, the wizard Gandalf, and a band of brave friends who risk their lives to combat evil ring-wraiths threatening Middle-earth! This deluxe set includes The Hobbit and the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings. 1409 pages total, four slipcased softcovers from Houghton Mifflin.

Classics. I would suggest everyone read these. Oh, yeah... I think they made some movies or something of the trilogy... Seems like they weren't that bad either.

Wil's Bones
By Kevin Bowen

Convinced he's discovered the bones of Jesus, atheistic archaeologist Wil Wilson sets out to destroy Christianity. Fearing ties to the excavation could undermine his re-election, the President masterminds an international cover-up. Now Wil's running for his life with the FBI in pursuit, spin doctors in overdrive, and
congressional hearings underway in this fast-paced political thriller with a theological twist. 244 pages, softcover from Engage.

I think this one was just average, but better than most Christian fiction.
