Christian Families and Christian Fantasy
Christian Family Values and Christian Fantasy
How can the Christian family instill biblical Christian values in the lives of their children? I would contend that biblically rooted Christian fantasy can be a valuable asset in a thoughtful parent’s mind and heart forming repertory. Veggie Tales films are good Christian fantasy and the Miller Brothers’ Christian fantasy books are fabulous as well. There is really good Christian fantasy out there.
Granted, not all so called “Christian fantasy” is worth the time of day. In fact, not all Christian fantasy is Christian in a biblical sense. But again, biblically rooted Christian fantasy is of value to the whole family. As I have voiced in previous blogs, Christian fantasy demonstrates the application of biblical truth. Christ used story to bring to life the truth He proclaimed. Much of the Bible comes to us in story form–history, yes, but still in the form of story. We learn about putting God first in spite of circumstances from the story of Joseph. We learn about courage and absolute trust in God from the story of David and Goliath. We learn about consequences from the story of David and Bathsheba. Stories clarify truth. Good Christian fantasy elucidates truth, brings it to life.
