An All-Time Christian Fiction Top Ten

Lists are ubiquitous on the internet, but sometimes one gets us curious and sparks discussion. Such is the case with this list at Newsmax. There’s a write-up for each title, we’ve just listed the books in question here. Click the title below to see more.

10 Most Popular Works of Christian Fiction

  1. A Wrinkle in Time – Madeleine L’Engle
  2. Christy – Catherine Marshall
  3. The End of the Affair – Graham Greene
  4. Gilead – Marilynne Robinson
  5. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe – C. S. Lewis
  6. Lord of the Rings – J. R. R. Tolkien
  7. Love Comes Softly – Janette Oke
  8. The Man Who Was Thursday – G. K. Chesterton
  9. Wise Blood – Flannery O’ Connor
  10. This Present Darkness – Frank Peretti

So what do you think? What about Les Miserables by Victor Hugo? Or Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers? And wouldn’t you want to include Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan in a list like this? Am I being too Evangelical to want to include In His Steps by Charles Sheldon? Or The Singer by Calvin Miller? Or Hannah Hurnard’s Hind Feet on High Places? How about a nod to Beverly Lewis for kick-starting the Amish genre within Christian fiction? Or was that Wanda Brunstetter?

In a larger store environment, do you think a display of this top ten (or an amended version) would work for Christmas?

    Here in the UK, the Church Times attempted a similar thing recently, complete with dedicated website, http://www.ct100books.co.uk/ — methinks any shop that based its stock holdings on it would go out of business in fairly short order!
