Update your reading list with this list of christian fiction authors including new, old, historic, and other types of Christian fiction. Christian fiction saw a surge of popularity in the 20th century, especially during the 1950s. Today it is still popular, and even atheists may be surprised to learn that some of their favorite writers are considered authors of christian fiction, such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. "Christian fiction" doesn't necessarily mean that a book is about Jesus Christ, or even specifically about Christians.

What it does mean is that the book's story follows the themes of Christianity. With the introduction of the Nook, Kindle, and iPad with iBooks, reading is hot again.
