Abstract

Abstract:

Like many evangelical authors, Frank E. Peretti claims that his writing is a ministry. While critics and reviewers have noted the way he popularized supernatural thrillers in the evangelical market and enjoyed unprecedented financial success for an evangelical author, they fail to recognize that the specific kind of ministry that Peretti engages in through fiction is new in three key ways: it is masculine, it is political, and it is sectarian. As a result, this paper argues that Peretti is responsible for changing the relationship between fiction authors and their audience within the evangelical market.
