Write Truth. Don’t Preach.

When writing a story, have you ever added a quick Gospel message in a way that seems forced? For example, out of the blue you have added something like, “Your brother gave his life for you, just like Christ would have done.” I’ve been guilty of that. But fiction writers are meant to write stories that both entertain and have readers think deeply, not create stories that might as well be PSAs. But how can we do that and bring glory to God as well as shine light to a dark world?

Hannah Mae shares what writing Biblical truth looks like without having to turn your story into a sermon. Click on the link at the bottom to access her podcast, FlyingFaith Talks! There you will find the title, “Averting Over-Preachiness.”
