Writing Challenge: Religion in Writing PLUS Book and Critique Giveaway!!!!

Angela Morrison writes about a girl who is religious and falls into temptation
but her novel, Taken by Storm, doesn’t feel preachy.

Other examples of books that deal with religion but don’t feel heavy handed are Sara Zarr’s Once Was Lost and Louise Plummer’s A Dance for Three.

How do you think an author achieves this balance? What are other examples of books that handle issues of faith well? How does your worldview infuse your writing?

You have until midnight on Sunday to post a comment. Two lucky people will win a copy of one of Angela Morrison’s books.

Mary Kole, Associate Agent at Andrea Brown Literary Agency, Inc. is also having a contest. Look here for information. It’s almost over but she is hoping for great entries so write then email away, everyone!
