    I understand how specifically biblical fiction is its own subgenre, but I have some difficulties with "Christian fiction" as a general category. Very similarly to "Christian music" (meaning not worship, but the CCM variety) and "Christian movies" (e.g., PureFlix), I feel like the existence of such a category is primarily a marketing device, a signal to the white, middle-class American evangelical subculture that these materials are "safe" and non-threatening (and which often translates into their being fairly insipid). By contrast, e.g., the fiction of Lewis or Tolkien wasn't intended or marketed as "Christian fiction" even though in a real sense it profoundly was (and in the case of Wm. Paul Young, I know that he too dislikes being boxed in this category). After all, any book/art that a Christian produces will in some way reflect what he or she believes, and anything that genuinely embodies truth/goodness/beauty will speak to (but also challenge) anyone who's open to it, whether its creator is Christian or not. So all these books you mention may well be terrific, I just question the category!
