Podcast #72: The Concept of Coming Home within Christian Fiction

May 25, 2024

Every human heart longs for heaven. And, as Christians, the anticipation of going home to heaven one day is a unique theme we can poignantly wrestle with in our fiction.


We can explore the tension we feel between the now of living for Christ in an imperfect world and the not yet of experiencing the new heavens and earth.


In today’s episode, Daeus, Mariposa, and Josiah discuss how to write about a home we yearn for but haven’t yet seen. They also give advice on staying faithful each day without wishing to “escape” to heaven.




What book has moved you with its portrayal of the Christian concept of homecoming? Let us know in the comments!
