2. Hard Shouldn't Stop Us from Evangelism
So if no one likes the way most conversion plots are written, we're all clear to leave them out, right?
Writing the gospel is almost as humbling for the writer as for the character going through it. It requires constant prayer, and all the time there is the anguish of what if I write it wrong and so damage the cause of the Gospel without wanting to? Words have great power to damage or help, and that's a huge weight for authors to carry. But just because we know we can't write conversion plots perfectly doesn't mean we don't write them at all.
So for readers--let the author keep it simple. If you find books with gospel stories that keep it real and keep it clear, recommend those books, let the authors know you appreciated them, and encourage them to keep on writing the good news of Jesus Christ.
