I just received the following email:
I just am finishing the book, “Uncharted” I found it very difficult reading. In addition, for a Christian author where is all this talking to the dead, etc. I was really turned off with that. In fact, I will have a hard time picking up one of your future reads. We live in such a satanic world that we don’t need to be encouraged by, even fiction, slanting towards something that is not of God.
This is one of the hardest things about going public with your thoughts, your stories, your life in pages–when someone completely misunderstands, misses the point, or misinterprets all that you have struggled for months to say. Of course I wrote this person back and tried to explain that Uncharted is the retelling of a biblical parable, but I’m not sure my explanations help.
It’s hard for me to understand how someone could think that a book could originate with a Christian author, get past a Christian editor (half a dozen of them, actually), be published by a Christian publisher, and get into Christian bookstores while being “not of God.”
~~Angie, wishing you a blessed Friday. Anyone getting an iPhone today?
