Among Christian authors, Janette Oke has made a mark in the field of inspirational fiction. Published in 1979, her first novel sold more than a million copies, and she is now one of the most successful authors in this category. She has won numerous awards and continues to receive fan mail from readers around the world. She lives in Alberta, Canada, with her husband, Edward. She and her family have four children.
Her books range from engaging children's stories to inspiring novels for adults. Her books cover a wide range of subjects, including the history of Christianity and the role of faith in the world. Each novel will appeal to readers of any age or faith. Although the books have religious themes, they are not overly pious or preachy. Readers will appreciate the historical background as well as the faith that permeates each character.
After completing Goshen College, Edward accepted a position as an assistant minister at a Missionary Church. Janette worked in a mailroom at a manufacturing company and taught Sunday school. Life was good for the Okes. They prayed and felt comfort. Janette's faith in God was strong enough to withstand the most horrific circumstances. In the end, her faith in God proved invaluable. It was her strength in the face of adversity that allowed her to persevere in her work.
The first book in the Brides of Hope Mountain series, Aiming for Love, by Mary Connealy, is a light and fun read. The story centers around three sisters who grew up on a mountain. Chance, the youngest, has never been out of the highlands, and his fiancee's pretty daughter, a Christian missionary, challenges them to move to the lowlands.
Connealy writes a series of cowboy romances, set in the early 1860s, as well as inspirational books for the market. Her books include the Lassoed in Texas series, Montana Marriages series, and Sophie's Daughters. She lives on a cattle ranch in eastern Nebraska with her husband, Ivan, and four daughters. Jilly Stiles is an intelligent engineer, educated to run her father's lumber dynasty. Her marriage to a former pastor puts her on the path of a successful future.
In the middle of the twentieth century, Christian fiction writers are reimagining the history of the faith with novels set in a range of historical periods. One such author, Amanda Barratt, has been a ECPA bestselling author since her first novel, "My Dearest Dietrich." The author's love of the faith inspired her to write books about religious historical figures such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Martin Luther King, Jr.
In her recent novel, "The White Rose Resists," Amanda Barratt has successfully bridged the gap between fact and fiction. The novel, set in Munich during World War II, follows a group of university students, and her research is evident throughout the novel. The novel contains numerous quotes taken directly from diaries, allowing readers to understand how the historical figures felt. This work of fiction will leave readers wondering what price they would pay to be free.
Janette Lyet Gassman
"Religious Historical Fiction" by Jeanne Lyet Gassman is set in a small town in Arizona. It is the story of a young woman who is raised by religious sisters and learns about life in a Mormon mission. It is a compelling story about faith and faithlessness, the struggle between right and wrong, and the power of language. A former journalist, Jeanne Lyet Gassman has a MFA in writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts and has received fellowships from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and Ragdale. Her work has been published in numerous magazines, and she teaches creative writing workshops.
"Religious Historical Fiction" is a captivating novel about Jesus' world. It will enlighten readers about the beliefs of Jesus' time, and will help them make sense of his teachings. Gassman uses recent archaeological discoveries and translations to explore the psychological and philosophical foundations of the ideas of Jesus. As a Christian, I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading more by this author.
