While there have been recent success stories by Christian authors, it seems that many readers are already in the faith.

Why does there seem to be a lack of titles which appeal to non-religious readers, and what books would you recommend to such readers?

Nike Chillemi My Sanctuary Point series is set in 1946/47 and is aimed to appeal to those who don't go bezerk when seeing Christian symbolism. Yet it's not overtly preachy.

I think Steven James Patrick Bowers series is a contemporary series that the nonreligious could read.

I was wondering the same thing Larry. I'm sure there are authors that are clean and not considered "Chritian Fiction" too.

Any more recommendations?

Michelle (michelle_sutton) | 30 comments I read Delirium by Lauren Oliver and it was a dystopian novel, but clean and inspiring, though not Christian.

I think there are a lot of authors like myself and Nike who hope to bridge the gap and write books that both Christians and non-believers can enjoy. I know my book Yesterday's Tomorrow has been read by people who don't necessarily share my faith, but they have enjoyed it. If you'd like to check it out, this is a great time, as it's the July pick!

I'm looking forward to reading your book, Nike. Is it available on Kindle yet?

Joy  (joytdavid) | 3 comments The Waterfall series by Lisa Bergren is a time travel YA series which seems to have crossover appeal. I've seen it discussed on lots of general market book blogs.
