What Are Some Christian-Themed Stories?

Popular Christian-themed stories include those in "The Chronicles of Narnia" series by C.S. Lewis and the "Left Behind" series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. Lee Strobel's "The Case For Christ" is a nonfiction Christian-themed story.

Christian-themed stories exist in nearly every fiction and nonfiction category, including fantasy, romance and business. Lewis has written several for both children and adults, including "The Screwtape Letters." "The Shack" by William Paul Young is another popular story. Frank Peretti's "This Present Darkness" and its follow-up "Piercing the Darkness" are other examples of Christian-themed literature.

Members of the Cathy family, including patriarch S. Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A, have written several books that chronicle their family's story of business success guided by Christian principles. These books include "How Did You Do It, Truett?" and "Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People."

The website Inspirational Christian Stories includes several stories that can be freely read and shared. These short stories include "Donut Parable," "God's Letter to You" and "Heaven."

"Heaven Is For Real" by Todd Burpo tells the story of his son Colton's near-death experience and subsequent visit to heaven. The book quickly became a New York Times bestseller. The story has since been made into a movie. While Alex Malarkey, who wrote a similar book called "The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven," later retracted his story, as of 2015, the Burpos continue to stand by the events in "Heaven Is For Real."
