As storytellers, we thrive on finding new story ideas. However, as Christians, we’re called to uphold certain unchanging truths. What are the limits of orthodoxy when crafting a distinct fantasy world or exploring a unique theme? How can we seek to portray truth creatively yet remain grounded in Christian theology? In today’s episode, Josiah DeGraaf, Rolena Hatfield, and Daeus Lamb answer these questions and share how they’ve navigated this issue in their own writing.

Have you ever wrestled with how to adhere to Christian orthodoxy within the perimeters of fiction? What are your thoughts on how to do this? Let us know!
