I am intrigued at the idea of using the form of story to express a Scriptural truth over against using some heavy philosophical argument that could sometimes confuse one or only work to make the issue more obscure.

I appreciate the references to Chesterton, Lewis, and O'Connor as strong voices for expressing apologetical points. Sometimes I thin the Christian genre is too tranparent. Now that I think that Calvin Miller's Singer-Song-Finale trilogy is poor writing, or that Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness is not riveting (and don't get my wife started on Janette Oke or Lauraine Snelling). But they have a "written by Christians for Christians" feel to them.

It is so hard to write these days without being suspected of having a hidden agenda or heavily veiled moral to your story. This conference seems to offer new horizons to getting an idea across without pressing the issue to the painful point.

I am one of the speakers at the conference and I will be discussing some of the current offerings in "Christian speculative fiction" that is Christian fantasy, science fiction, and horror that use apologetics as part of their premises. Thanks for your insight.
