'Why I Write Christian Thrillers?' (16 hits)

Here's a short behind the scenes insight about my motivation for the stories I create at Potter's Word Publishing with Author Luana Ehrlich:

Author Cortez Law III writes:

I’ve always loved the cat and mouse hunt that are thrillers, suspense, and mysteries that paint heart-thumping, complex puzzles. Christian thrillers, suspense, mysteries present opportunities to analyze the evil of a man’s heart as it relates to biblical truths.

Romans 6:23 states, “For the wages of sin is death . . .”; Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he . . .” and Matthew 15:19, “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”

Many of our policemen and policewomen are Christians. I want to depict them as everyday people punching the clock like the rest of working America.

As the investigation progresses in my novels, so does the spiritual journey of the characters. Some become more enlightened; others may not. Man is a spirit, he possesses a soul and lives in a body. Many crime stories in the general trade don’t acknowledge the spirit or inner man’s journey. They tend to focus on the mind, will, emotions, imagination, and memory of the soul.

A similar focus targets the body’s five senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. It’s difficult to pepper the spiritual element in these stories without seeming to proselytize. However, it’s also difficult not to include the biblical element as a Christian writer. It’s who I am. In addition, I can reflect my African-American heritage within these stories for even greater depth.
