Recently, at a party, a Christian leader raved about various novels. When asked about a particular Christian novelist, he replied, "I never read Christian fiction. It's predictable, sugar-coated, preachy, and poorly written!"
"Can you give some examples?" I asked.
He couldn't. Not one. He'd last read Christian fiction 20-some years ago. I politely suggested that since he never reads it, his opinion might not be up-to-date and well-informed.
