What are serious Christians reading these days?

Is it still CS Lewis? Is there anything good from this century?

        It's fantastic and it's thoroughly Christian, as much as something like the Divine Comedy.

      Have you read his latest book, A History of the Island? I enjoyed it, but it seemed pretty obviously about Russia and Ukraine's history all the way to the modern day, including the war. But then after seeing other people's interpretations, I might be dead wrong, or maybe it's intentionally made to be a Rorschach Test that you can impose whatever you want on it. Or maybe they all missed the point because almost nobody actually knows any pre-revolution Russian history so they didn't catch the early parallels and missed the whole point. Doesn't help the way the English release was marketed:

      Laurus:
      >This is a RUSSIAN book about a RUSSIAN guy doing RUSSIAN things in RUSSIA, did we mention it's by a RUSSIAN author?
      History of the Island:
      >It's... uh... satire! Of, y'know, the myth of progress... and Western civilization? By a EUROPEAN author. Please don't look up where he's from.

    Serious Christians don't read. They go to a shitty local church on Sunday and spend most of their time on Facebook and Twitter getting mad at nonexistent problems.

      Protip, if Christians were the reason homosexuals are hated, homosexuals wouldn't primarily exist in traditionally Christian countries.
      Everyone fricking hates you because of the fricked way you act.

    I haven't read anything from the century personally. G. K. Chesterton, Tolkien are my favorites. Christopher Dawson is also good (if you read the article below Dawson has a relevant book worth checking out called Mission to Asia).

        I liked Socratic Logic. He's not bad, but I'm more into history and fiction over philosophy otherwise I'd read more of his.

    Christianity is, by definition, not serious, since it's mostly a cynical ploy to lord over society

        We literally have nothing known on Jesus aside from the fact that he existed, and was crucified. The rest of his life is quite literally just one giant fanfic

            No, I do, we just have independent sources that corroborate with one another and tell a fairly consistent history. With Jesus, we have one book, that everyone has quoted for the past two millennia, a book which was itself carefully edited and selected, with its adherents actually openly gathering in a council which parts fits their doctrine. Imagine if historians gathered today in Nicea, and started throwing away all history that doesn't conform to the inclusive globalized marketplace. That's literally what you expect me to take seriously

            You're the one who came into a thread you clearly disagree with on a fundamental level, purely to start shit. Who's really seething?

            Anyway, to return to the topic at hand, Gilead is a great contemporary Christian book. Don't be put off by it being written by a woman, or by its popular status (it was part of Oprah's Book Club). It's a diamond in the rough and really actually good literature. It takes the form of an epistolary novel, with letters that an elderly Protestant preacher is writing to his infant son that he had with a younger woman he's married, a son he knows he will not live to see grow to adulthood. It's a really intriguing book.

            Yes.

            In what way are these Christian? I mean that literally. For example, LotR is Christian only in theme (albeit significantly so) while The Space Trilogy is basically a Biblical retelling, I wouldn't even call it allegory since it happens in the real world though you could make that argument.

      This. I used to larp as a catholic, but nowadays I hate christisraelitery. The very image of jebus the israelite on the cross makes me cringe.

      Christianity makes men lose touch with their own masculinity. Jesus unironically defended prostitutes. I am sure that christian women deep down hate christian men.

          Okay, here's some christisraelite fanfic for you

          >Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them. As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.
          >“Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”
          >They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.
          >When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”
          > “No, Lord,” she said.
          >And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

          Imagine reading this garbage and not thinking that the NT was designed to appeal to old prostitutes and their bastards. Christianity supports degeneracy.

            I'm pretty sure that literature other than the Bible is considered worldly and heresy by your standards, so discussing this with your worldview isn't fruitful to begin with
