Most of the time, we feature inspirational, leadership, relationship books or in other words, non-fiction books. But this week, we’d like to put a little more focus on the Christian fiction genre. Probably the most familiar to most people are the Left Behind series and the Joel Rosenberg books. But maybe you’d like to try out a few more of the other books that are available at our OMF Lit Bookshops. And if you would like to share a fiction book that you’ve read, feel free to post in the comments!

 

Listen by Rene Gutteridge

Nothing ever happens in the small town of Marlo . . . until the residents begin seeing their private conversations posted online for everyone to read. Then it’s neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, as paranoia and violence escalate. The police scramble to identify the person responsible for the posts and pull the plug on the Website before it destroys the town. But what responsibility do the people of the town have for the words they say when they think no one is listening? Life and death are in the power of the tongue.

 

 

Immanuel’s Veins by Ted Dekker

It is a dangerous tale of times past. A love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice.
Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee. Forgetting it once had a truer lover.
With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.
Love will prove greater than lust. Sacrifice will overcome seduction. And blood will flow.
Because the battle for the heart is always violently opposed. For those desperate to drink deep from this fountain of life, enter.
But remember, not everyone is for this story.
