I just took a slightly more direct route. Any recommendations? As always, I look forward to your thoughts and comments. Please feel free to give me some feedback in the section below or on the Facebook links.
I am not a scientist, but I do enjoy learning about our progress in understanding our world. It does make it harder to enjoy science fiction. Think of the scene in Star Wars where you can see two moons in the sky. I am a christian and a lover of stories. I would prefer that all entertainment, whether theistic or anti-theistic, or anywhere in between, be entertaining without being preachy. Both of which were written by believers and promoted admirable characteristics, though Narnia is more obviously religious.
Nothing personal, God. One thing that most religious readers, as well as those scientifically minded not mutually exclusive categories, by the way , struggle with is the suspension of disbelief. The religious find it offensive, and the scientifically minded find it incredulous. But if I am to enjoy the Back to the Future series, I have to forget about the impossibility of time travel.
And I really love the series. In the end, it takes talent to write a story that promotes whatever message you wish without distracting the reader and diminishing its entertainment value. And, though as an Empirical Physicalist, you may not think it has any affect, may God bless your endeavor and best wishes to you.

So you read a Christian book just to complain about it having Christian elements? I searched Christian Science fiction to get some insight for a book that I an actual christian want to write. Thanks for your comment. Actually, as a long-time sci-fi fan, I wanted to read a Christian sci-fi to see what possible need there could be for that particular sub-genre, and how someone would categorize themselves that way. It seemed tacked on, more like a cynical marketing decision. I can imagine others have perhaps done a better job of this. I would hope so for people who are interested in that sort of thing.
I suspect my novel, The Reality Thief, does a better job of representing Christian beliefs and putting them at the core of the theme than this book did. I feel that it is just a ploy to try to convert everyone else to Christianity. I have meet one of these writers at a comic con, and instead of trying to explain his book I felt like he was trying to convert me to the faith. A writer should write the story for his own reason and the reader will do the same. Art is suppose to mean different things to different people.
Watch for chapters showing up in blogs over the next few weeks. I was upset to find that goodreads put the Percy Jackson books in this genre. It is clearly a book based on Greek Pagainism not Christianity.
I was also shocked that I did not see The Golden Compass on this list. Next they are going to put Harry Potter books in this genre. Books just like art is supposed to be reinterpreted by the readers.
In other words one person may get something else out of the story, then why the writer wrote it in the first place. Still, it had an afterlife of a sort.

Thanks for your comments. Even when a book is clearly labeled as Christian, non-believers still complain. I do understand that some people are kind of offended by Judeo-Christian claims and wish to push back. I get that, because I am Mr. Pushback against pretty much everything. Where I typically part company with atheist commentators is that I want to challenge their claims and chosen authorities too. I see this as being loyal to the principles of reason, intellectual honesty, fair mindedness etc. On a personal note I must admit I lost interest in challenging theist claims decades ago, but I still struggle with the urge to challenge atheist claims, as you can see.
And like everybody else, the most productive and rational thing I could do would probably be to focus on challenging my own claims. Do we like it? Are we addicted to it? Are we fearful of it? Do we want more, less, something else? We could for instance interview many mystics and artists etc, catalog their descriptions, compare them to one another, apply logic to their claims etc.
We could never fully understand falling in love with people or reality without having those experiences ourselves. I have no argument here at all. In fact my advice would be, discard religion completely, put it down and walk away, clearing the decks for some other opportunity which we may find to be more promising. But it would be a mistake, imho, to throw the baby out with the bath water and also discard the quest to fall in love with reality. As I see it, this is not a religious agenda, but a human agenda, with religion being just one method for pursuing that agenda that some find useful.
Religion has personalized reality, which would seem to have proven itself a useful device, for many at least, if not all. As example, say we find ourselves married to someone called Mr. Here we are, stuck with them forever, for the better and the worse. How are we going to manage this marriage?

I think many of them are reasonably scientific falsifiable. I would like to tighten them up and set about showing how they are false. What about playing chess? Yet, here we are a hundred years later, and there are clearly reductionist implementations of mental activities we used to only be able to understand in terms of an enlightened human mental activity.
Does that really matter?
