Among the many places I write, one of the newest is over at Adventist Today‘s website. Adventist Today is an online and print publication geared towards promoting some of the more contemporary and progessive voices within the Adventist church, and I’ve had the honour of being asked to write a quarterly column for their online edition. Appropriately for November (National Novel-Writing Month), I chose to write about being a reader and writer of fiction — a vocation still viewed with some suspicion in conservative Adventist circles, as it is in many conservative Christian communities. Even those who wouldn’t categorize fiction-reading as a “sin” often treat it as a guilty indulgence, frittering away time that could be better used on more “serious” reading and study. Not surprisingly, I argue for a very different view … you can read my column here.
