I am placing final touches on my second book before publishing it: "Nothing but the Gospel: Can We be Saved Through Creation, Other Religions, or Human Philosophy?"

GENRE: Apologetics

"This book explores the tug of war between the two positions, one a long held one and one a more recent one. The long held position is that salvation comes only through explicit faith in Jesus Christ. There is no other way (John 14:6) and no other name by which one comes to know God and His salvation (Acts 4:12). People must know the gospel for salvation. Exclusivism defines this position.

The other position called inclusivism uses the same Scripture to claim that Jesus is indeed the Savior of the world. However, according to this position, people do not need to know about Jesus for salvation. That is, Jesus as Savior is incognito or behind the scenes saving people through other means than the gospel.

If we have many messages, they dilute our passion for God and others. If God makes a promise, would He not have the power and the provision to keep it? If God gives the message, would He not fulfill it? The answer to these questions is a resounding and unconditional YES. This book promotes that YES." (c) Copyright 2014

Welcome IGNITEME101!

Hi DIMMEA :) Perhaps you are creating a new sub-genre.

That 'someone else' would be me .... :)

My Fantasy writing will certainly not be classified anywere under "religious literature", but my inspiration usually comes from Bible stories and/or characters and I can't seem to write without religious and moral themes.

Probably because that's how my brain is wired.

I am in the process of exploring some Biblical narratives and have had conversation with someone else who is drawing from similar sources.

This thread is intended as a place for anyone who may share a related direction in their writing, and who might have questions or suggestions to offer.

As the title indicates, I don't think "religious" is a single genre, as there are so many possible variations, both of religious belief and literary direction, so this is open for pretty wide discussion and participation.
