Christian Fiction upholds a Christian viewpoint throughout the plot, characters, in a positive way. Other genres can be blended into the Christian Fiction genre, such as romance. In most Christian Fiction books, a character may grow in their faith or spiritually, or might grow in their understanding of God and His impact on their lives, or as their salvation from hardships or crisis.

While it’s not a requirement, most popular and well known Christian Fiction portrays some sort of persecution or prophecy.
