Some Comments on Christian Fiction

I had a very interesting comment on my post "The Begotten - Final Questions." I can't verify it, because the Blogger profile attached to it is listed as "not shown", but it is labeled as being from one Anne Rice.

Thanks for your kind mention of my novels on Christ the Lord. ---- And I enjoyed your comments on fiction in general. My vocation is to write realistic novels that are about Our Blessed Lord as both Human and Divine, and to keep the probable reality within the truth of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. I believe this is not only valid but imperative for me now as a Christian. In my childhood, we had those big novels, The Robe, Ben Hur, Quo Vadis. We need a new Christian realism I think for this generation, and I'm trying to provide my take on it. Again, Thanks, Anne.

I thought this would be good food for thought over the next few days as I'm away from the computer. If this was really Anne, (and I believe it is), then thank you very much for taking time to stop by and comment!


  1. Jason, I've only been to Anne Rice's site a couple times, so I'm not claiming to be an expert, but I think the comment you quoted is in her voice. I would believe it is from her without hesitation. Wonderfully gracious.


  2. I assure you, I am the one who emailed you. My email is and my website is Anne I was pleased with your comment, and thank you again for your generous response. Take care, Anne Rice.

  3. Cool! Kindness gets you everywhere.
