@daeus-lamb It’s a really cool question. I think that God should be acknowledged in the story as a real being. Characters should struggle throughout the story, occasionally yelling at God. Basically, make it realistic and include God’s patient silence throughout the novel, as well as encounters with him. I feel like you should also give him control of the story line throughout the novel, so that he really is working throughout it. I’m not sure if I just restated anybody else’s answers; I’m reading them now.
