I wrotePrayer Chainbecause the premise seemed interesting. My own church has a prayer chain, and messages sometimes get garbled. What would happen (in a fictional world) if people prayed for the wrong thingsand the wrong things really happened?
But another motivation for writing the book was to add to the “Christian fiction” genre with a different kind of story: no diatribes against abortion or bizarre scenes from the end times. No grappling with heavy theological issues (it’sfiction). Just a story about regular people dealing with life, including the spiritual side of faith and seeking meaning in an often difficult world. -SL
