Should Christians read fantasy? (Part 1)

Should Christians read fantasy? (Part 1)

Should Christians read or watch fantasy fiction? Is there something intrinsically immoral about it? Or is it just harmless fun? Our heroes begin their discussion in this episode, part 1 of 2, by giving some basic guidelines on what speculative fiction is (speculative fiction being the larger category that fantasy is a part of) and then have some fun outlining a history of the fantasy genre. This one is fun in our humble opinion. And it features the Hemanologians trying to write a fantasy novel.
