    The Need for Edgy Christian Fiction Part 2 -- Write Stuff -- 3/31/2014

    in Radio

    Last week we began our discussion on edgy Christian fiction and the need for it. We'll continue our talk with our guest and touch on other areas related to this developing genre.


    Recently I was quoted in an article that's making it way around various writing circles both Christian and non-Christian alike discussing the need for edgy Christian Fiction.


    In the article I state: The current Christian fiction out there seems dull, boring, and unrealistic. This doesn't apply to every single book, but the majority of Christian fiction is very white washed, clean, and shows exemplary characters of sinners who sin 'a little'. This is not to say that we don't need those books, it's good to have a benchmark to aspire to, with the ultimate goal of being like Christ. However the state of the church, particularly in the west, proves this to be opposite. Churches contain people who lie, cheat, and steal. Cynics, skeptics, and seekers sing praises to God, and don't believe a word they're singing.

    I believe edgy Christian fiction addresses this by using the imagination of the mind, with real-world accuracy. It shows saints who go through life far from the peace and wisdom of God, and find their way back to Him. Of course it would have been better if they'd never fallen at all, but we all know that isn't the case."

    What is edgy Christian fiction? How does it apply to us? Is there a point where we can go too far? Join me as I discuss these and other issues with my guest, author and pastor George McVey.

    Inspiring Christian Fiction with Buck Storm & Karen Prough on Speak UP!

    in Christianity

    Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! as Scott interviews two Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas authors, Buck Storm and Karen Campbell Prough.


    Buck Storm grew up in Yuma, Arizona—a true son of the American Southwest. He's marked time as a commercial diver, fisherman, sailor, and musician. As a singer/songwriter and purveyor of tales, he's bounced around the planet with a guitar and a pocketful of stories and has made friends in venues across the country. Whether lyrics or prose, Buck writes about this mixed-up, out of control, beautiful cacophony we call humanity. Buck and his wife Michelle have a happy love story, a hideout in North Idaho, and two wonderful children. The Miracle Man is his first novel.


    Karen Campbell Prough grew up with a love for old books and steadfast characters. She spent some of her childhood entertaining younger brothers with short stories created by a wild imagination. She and her husband Edward have often camped in the Georgia Mountains, and there she placed the characters of her first book, The Girl Called Ella Dessa.

    Website 101 for Christian Entrepreneurs

    in Women

    Do I need to have a website if my business is small or if the product I’m selling or the service I’m offering is not online-based?


    In this tech-savvy world where children get to learn how to operate a tablet computer even before they learn how to read, it may come as a surprise to know that there are still small business owners out there who miss out on one of the most powerful marketing tools available to them.


    I somehow understand the hesitation. The World Wide Web can be a labyrinth for beginner Christian entrepreneurs. It’s challenging enough to start a business; having to learn technical things can be an added stress.


    But you don’t need to be techy in order to establish your business presence online. The key is in knowing the basics and finding the right people to do it for you.     


    In this episode we talk to author and speaker Holly Nelson, owner of 2C Development Group, a website development company. Holly’s business has been around since 1996, creating sites that convert visitors into customers.


    Holly will share with us important information website-less business owners need to know before sourcing for a company to help you build your company website.
