Imagine, if you will, a book. It’s a PI novel and sounds interesting enough to you. On the back there are blurbs from some well-known PI authors and maybe a couple authors you don’t recognize. The author has published a few stories in publications you recognize and even was nominated for an award or two. You scan the first few pages and it catches your interest but then you notice the publisher. It’s Tyndale, or Bethany House, or Zondervan, or any of the other Christian publishing houses. Would you still buy the book?
