A month or so ago, I read and reviewed Joseph Bayly's classic work of Christian science fiction for the Christian fiction website. I enjoyed the novel, especially the way it dealt with some difficult ethical questions and how Christians might respond to those questions. It isn't a novel that says how Christians should deal with such issue, but presents the different possible ways one might respond to the problems in real life. Not all the answers are equally palatable to some Christian readers, if the afterword by Bayly is any indication of the sorts of responses the novel provoked from that community. I like this approach that the novel took — not showing some black and white, moralistic approach to difficult situations, but presenting the possibilities and showcasing the difficulties attached to each route one might take.
