Hello I'm writing a book and my name is Morgan. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do for God in writing my book- should I make it an interesting story or an interesting story involving God? To do this, I'm going to need to learn more about servanthood and that is why I asked this question. I found this website online by accident today. Soon today is going to seem a million miles away so I'd let you know as soon as possible! I'm already on chapter 2 of my book. Should I make it seem more godly? Should I continue with the fantasy that I already have? Tell me as soon as you can please- I'd love to know! I hope I can get to know you all better and learn as much as I can about God. Thank you for making this lovely website and I'm so glad that I found it by accident even if it was just an accident.

Just read your question. First, I'm pretty sure you have finished this book so congratulations. Secondly, I'm sorry noone either found this question or maybe didnt have a good answer for you.

All I can do is give my humbled opinion based off of reading the Great Books, and many if the fantasy styles of writing by authors like Ted Dekker.

I think the world needs more fantasy with spiritual allegorical meaning.

Allegories are exciting because they use characters and events to convey a meaning. The book Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan It tells the story of a man's journey from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City, representative of the journey to Heaven, or Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser where each character represents a virtue or a vice. Specifically, the Red-Cross Knight represents holiness, Lady Una stands for goodness and the one true faith, Una's parents symbolize the human race, and the dragon represents evil. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis is a religious allegory. In it, we find that Aslan the lion represents Christ or God, the White Witch represents evil, and Edmund represents Judas as the betrayer.

There is so much fantasy still left for the writers out there that needs to be told through spiritual allegory that helps our Christian families build good moral characters in their children and even themselves.

I dont know if you plan on writing another book. If you do, consider writing the next best spiritual allegory.
