The Effect of Reading Good vs. "Schlocky" Fiction

Those without the imagination to read fiction usually lack the imagination to hear the rhythm and contours of Scripture, much less to peer into the mysteries of the human heart. I just think schlocky fiction does just the opposite of all of that.

I also think human love is a more than worthy subject of writing, including Christian writing. I just think it should be done with authenticity and honesty, and should look at love, not the hormonal utopia our culture has taught us to long for.

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
