  1. I’ve been extremely disappointed with the theology coming out of Bethany House fiction lately. It’s bad enough to see it so watered down and vague (reduced to just characters praying and some precursory mentions of God), but lately, on this list included, I’ve seen downright bad theology that makes me wonder if the authors have ever cracked open a Bible themselves. I’m disappointed to see that Bethany House is less a Christian publisher now and more just an inspirational one. I like to gift books, but I can’t gift a book that straight up preaches another gospel.
