Very helpful book reviews.
Thank you so much for addressing this topic. Unfortunately, I don’t have much time to read. When I do, I always stick to historical non fiction or Christian theology. Occasionally I will read classic novels. I have been too afraid to even attempt to read fiction because I never know what I might find. I know websites I can go to before watching a movie or tv show, but never knew about the websites you mentioned for books. Thank you so much for sharing this information! Very helpful
Though you’re hesitant, do you have any recommendations? I have plummeted my way through many Agatha Christie books, and they are pretty clean 🙂
Great episode. Really relevant to today’s world. Jessica Harris just published Quenched: Discovering God’s Abundant Grace for Women Struggling With Pornography and Sexual Shame. Pornography is no longer a man’s problem, especially with the accessibility and pervasiveness. You’ve hit the nail on the head that romance novels, etc., can have the same effect on women. Oh, yeah, “the pass” we give. Absolutely. Can we really “take captive every thought” if we are to justify our behavior?
I just happened upon a YA historical fiction/romance book that was surprisingly not wildly trashy, and I learned a bit about pre-WWII Germany. It’s called Prisoner of Night and Fog, by Ann Blankman. She has a sequel to the book which I haven’t read, but it was refreshing to read a book that was romantic in nature, but not trashy. It’s not “Christian” per say, so I think it would look different if the characters were Christian (would not be unequally yoked). But given the nature of who they were, I found it to be an interesting read.
