“The challenge is that there are so many different interpretations of biblical truth, it’s impossible to please every reader. In every world I create, I make my own list of rules and truths for that world, then I can measure characters’ actions against that standard. But biblical truths depend on the story and my goal for the story. The Kinsman Chronicles were allegory for an Old Testament world that would become a New Testament world, so I was able to make a lot of biblical parallels. A story I’m currently working on is about a much subtler biblical truth of being created in the image of God, so that story won’t have as many biblical parallels for every little aspect of the story and world.”
