mystery fictionI have always been interested in reading Christian-related books. I have always been very fascinated by different religions and how committed people are to them. I would like to become a true believer in God, but don’t feel that I am there yet. When I read Christian mystery fiction, I get to see religion from the author’s perspective and it always gives me interesting insights.

There are always interesting topics covered in Christian fiction. I like to read stories about the relationship between what the Bible says and the world in which we live today. It’s always nice to dive into a different world and to be able to get lost in it. I am always looking for answers to life’s toughest questions, including religious ones.

There are a lot of books out there that are on various Christian topics. I like to read books both that are for Christianity and that are anti-Christianity as well. Reading Christian mystery fiction that talks about the Bible is always interesting and gives me some good perspective on the Christian religion. I can’t wait to start my next awesome mystery fiction book and to discover all that it has in store for me.

What One Fiction Writer Can Teach “Innocent” Believers

Rex-Stout-imageThis blog’s bookstore has an expanding selection of novels and short stories by fiction author Rex Stout, who brings out significant truth under the guise of his super-genius private detective, Nero Wolfe.  Stout’s consistent theme is the utter evilness in the heart of those who know nothing of the love of God or His Son Jesus Christ.

Stout’s villains inevitably suffer from a common disease; they love money and will do anything to get it and keep it: lie, kill, anything! All of which proves an enduring axiom in God’s wholesale Christian Bibles: “For the love of money is the root of all evil  . . . (I Timothy 6: 10).”

Many of the over-whelming centers of guilt in Stout’s stories are extremely wealthy people. The men sit on boards of directions of banks, stock or other companies. The women have lives of ease resting on riches inherited from dead fathers or deceased husbands. They are taken from Stout’s era which was before, during and after World War II.

Some of these characters are so outlandish as to try to use such enormous wealth to hide their sins.  In one story, a woman killed her husband so he could not reveal she had lied on her tax return.  Another woman killed the ill-legitimate daughter of her extra-rich dead husband so that the girl could never lay claim to any of his–now his wife’s–millions.

In “The Father Hunt” one wealthy recluse used his millions, both to hide his sins and to dole out funds to assuage his guilt. But, ultimately God’s Word prove both goals remain eternally impossible.

As Scripture warns: “Go to now, [ye] rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon [you]. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten (James 5: 1 – 2).”

All people–both rich and poor–must understand that the final judgment day is coming. Indeed that is not fiction. As Apostle John writes The-Final-Judgement-Dayin Revelation 6: “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men,. . . hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

Stout understood that day is coming. Unfortunately, the time of his “fiction” is past. The words in his vocabulary are too intellectual. And his themes are too deep. No, most in today’s heathen population cannot believe that the love of money truly is the ultimate evil!

heavenly hostsChristianity has a lot of room for discussion and research. With the prophecies that are stated in the Bible itself, there are lots of books that dissect them piece by piece. One in particular is a study of angels and what roles they will play in future prophecies. It’s called Heavenly Hosts, and it’s by Finis Dake. It’s a fascinating read that really delves into angels and their roles.

The thing is, people think of angels in a very specific way. That’s not necessarily the truth, and this book helps outline them in Biblical truth. I always want to learn the truth about things, and sometimes media can really make the truth difficult to find. That’s where books like these really come in handy. When it comes to Christian non-fiction prophecy books, this is one of the best ones out there. It is a reliable non-fiction book that focuses on a study of angels.

So before assuming something about angels, be sure to look it up in either the Bible or this great book. Heavenly Hosts outlines points clearly and gives a good overview of angels and prophecies, so if you’re looking for information about that be sure to give it a go.
