Interesting blog entry on "Christian Fantasy"

A nibble:
So I think we want to keep that in mind–that Christian writing to a non-Christian world view is, at best, often just neutral. There is an increasing divide between Christian and non-Christian thinking, and translation is needed.

So our world view has to be backed up and anchored effectively to reality, and relying on the pop culture’s thirst for clear-cut heroism is probably not sufficient. Winds change. God doesn’t.

Also, what’s being done with Christian fantasy today is reinvention and revision, not direct challenge on the genre’s own grounds. It’s taking the same Gospel story, still without showing non-believers any realistic background for it, and just retelling the same thing over again.
