In Defense of Fantasy

"The common presence of kings and other royalty in fantasy stories is another aspect of fantasy that I enjoy. This set-up provides an obvious metaphor for our relationship with the Lord, and illustrates not only the humility and devotion required of those who serve the king, but also the responsibilities and self-sacrifice required of the king himself. Contrasting characters show the pitfalls of refusing to submit to the rightful authority, and the destructive power of having authority and abusing it. The use of characters who have royal blood also reminds us of our own status as kings and lords in the royal family of God.

Fantasy themes typically include loyalty, courage, self-sacrifice, and the need to be ever vigilant in fighting against the forces of evil. Because fantasy worlds tend to be modeled on our own historical past and their storylines focused on issues higher than any one person’s self-absorbed goals, the characters and societies, at least the good ones, tend to have more respect for virtue and honor, and so cultivate a higher standard of morality." Karen Hancock'In Defense of Fantasy'

I think fantasy is great fun. I like things with that little bit of a different edge.

Hi All. Although I've been a member for a while, I haven't been active at all. I'd like to change that. So, what's everybody reading?

Bill Tillman, looks like you are reading interesting books. Do you have a reading list for 2013?

Comment by Retha Groenewald on January 16, 2013 at 2:08am

I recently  finished Black, Red, and White  - absolutely loved it. Bill, I enjoyed everything, the theology as well. It made me realize how important our relationship with God is.

What a difference between when I read a non-Christian fantasy novel than one that is! Its more than just the story, its the attitude of the writer that comes through.
