Why I Write Christian Historical Fiction by Amber Schamel

Today I'm so excited to kick off the Celebrate Lit blog tour! We've got nine wonderful blog stops with a chance to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card. How exciting is that?

To kick it all off, we're answering one of the most common questions that readers ask "Why do you write what you write?"

Why Do I write Christian Historical Fiction?

Many people have asked me why I chose to write the genre that I do, and it’s a fair question. Fiction has often been viewed as frivolous, even a waste of time by those of us that are more practical natured, but in reality, that is far from the truth.
Isn’t it interesting that the #1 best seller of all time, the Bible, is primarily story? The Bible has 66 books, out of those, at least 23 are filled with stories of patriarchs, kings, and other characters including Jesus Himself. During His ministry on earth, Jesus used parables to teach the people.

Hop on over to the Celebrate Lit blog to read the rest and enter to win the $25 Amazon Gift Card!
