Description: From Library Journal
Mort, a former adult services librarian and the Christian fiction columnist for Booklist, offers a thorough explanation of the genre and an exploration of reader's advisory sources specific to the literature, followed by almost 2000 annotations and bibliographies of books published mostly from the mid-1990s through the beginning of 2002. Especially useful are his summaries of early Christian classics and an overview of biblical fiction. In addition to using standard categories such as historical romance and mystery, Mort takes a unique approach by listing Catholic, Mormon, Amish, Mennonite, and Quaker fiction, subgenres that often have been overshadowed by the evangelical publishers and authors who dominate Christian fiction. Titles specifically aimed at young adults are separately profiled; adult titles with strong YA appeal are noted throughout. Entries can be accessed through the index by author, title, and limited subject headings. However, the lack of a more thorough subject index and a quick key to the many icons employed can require the user to be tenacious. The most comprehensive and up-to-date tool focusing on Christian fiction available, this is an outstanding supplement to Barbara J. Walker's Developing Christian Fiction Collections for Children and Adults. Collection development librarians and reader's advisors familiar with the publisher's "Genreflecting Advisory" series can trust this latest entry. Recommended for all libraries with Christian fiction collections.
