Christian fiction is big business these days. What does it mean to write fiction in a way faithful to the Faith? The Christian's imagination must of course be rooted at all points in self-conscious commitment to what God tells us about the real world. By making us and the world as He did, God inescapably limited the possibilities of what we, as His image-bearers, can think and do under His sovereignty. We are not autonomous founts of inspiration and “creativity.” J.R.R. Tolkien was one of the major developers of a principle called "sub-creation," a way of thinking about the task of writing fiction rooted in Christian convictions. This book is an initial foray into what the limits of subcreation might be for aspiring Christian fiction-writers.
