My Latest Project

I’d like to tell you about a project I’ve been working on. It’s a new kind of writing for me, but it was so much fun! I’d love to hear from you.

I used a Biblical Fiction format. Why did I do this? Because studying the lives of those who experienced the first Christmas made me realize that they were real people with real and somewhat messy lives. It made me realize that often our most sacred act of worship is when God says, “I’ve got a plan, will you join me?” We say yes. No matter how uncomfortable, no matter how messy, we simply say “Yes” and do the best we can.

How would you feel about an entire book written using this Biblical Fiction format? Do you think it’s a good way to learn?

Would you like your own copy? Just use the form to the right.

  1. I think Biblical fiction is an awesome way to spread the Good News of Jesus. I use it often in writing our Christmas plays for church. My plays are set in Bethlehem and feature period characters whose lives are forever changed through their interaction with the miracle of the Christ child’s birth. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving and a blessed Christmas!

  2. This is a wonderful idea, Loretta! We do tend to make biblical characters larger than life and forget that they had the same struggles we do. I look forward to reading your devotional.
