Athol Dickson on Evil in Christian Fiction

"We must decide what we mean by 'realistic' fiction. Here we move into the practice of good writing. The job of a serious novelist is to show truth, not true-life, which is a different thing. True-life lies on the surface, but the truth lies deeper down, beneath superficial preconceptions."

An excellent post, on a great blog. Read it here, at the Charis Connection.

I wrote on the topic myself some time ago. The article, "Beauty and the Beast: Good, Evil, and the Art of Writing" was published in "The Sword Review." Read it here.
