How Far Is Too Far?

In Christian fiction, sex and cursing—no. But graphic violence is fine.

To read the rest of this article simply click on the title of this column (above). I have to say I agree that the hypocrisy from CBA readers is killing me... not literally.

I agree that graphic violence should not be allowed in the Christian book arena. Obviously, murders take place, but bone-chilling, barbaric, extreme violence need not be described graphically

I agree with what that person said. I do not read horror, or even suspense. I am easily scared, and so, have to be extra careful. The Bible says, in no uncertain terms, that fear is a BAD thing. It is not of God. So I personally think that those types of books are hypocritical.
Truth? Yes. Horror? No.

Thanks for posting that Michelle!
