A list of the best contemporary christian fiction. These are novels featuring a prevalent christian theme. With between a quarter to a third of the world's population practicing Christianity, these books serve a wide fan-base. With this in mind, despite the christian themes, the stories within these texts can vary as much as any other type of book. If the author is skilled enough, subtext may also play a key role as the reader may not even realize they are reading a story with a christian theme. Sometimes it may be more obvious as the characters are religious figures such as priests, nuns, or even Jesus Christ himself. Suffice to say, christian fiction is an eclectic genre not just for the faithful, but for anyone who enjoys a good story.
