Greg Wolfe on The MA

  • "An excellent example of a group blog, a true community of like-minded but highly individual writers. . . . Topics range from the state of Christian publishing to craft issues to lyrical meditations on writing as a spiritual discipline."

    GREGORY WOLFE in Christianity Today, March 2008


  • The Master's Artist is a group blog for writers united by the blood of Christ and a love for language. We come from different backgrounds, have different theological outlooks, and are interested in a wide variety of genres and artforms. The opinions expressed belong to their authors alone -- and you're welcome to share yours.

Thanks, Melanie, for this challenging perspective. I like what you've written, concerning the Church, in 1.-3. God grant the Church to lead, once again, in all the arts!


It always is amazing what God will use . . .

Melanie -

Sorry so late in commenting on this great post! I too have been reading through / watching these stories with some hesitancy but entirely intrigued as you were by the craze surrounding these books.

I love the parallels you've drawn, and the questions you've raised about the challenges we all face in learning to love what's right, to stand up for the weak, and to grapple with our own humanity are all excellent.

I believe that God can use just about anything to speak to us, and while Stephanie Meyer's books may not speak to everyone the same way, the parallels remain.

Thanks for pointing this out so well!
