Here you'll find a way to reach that very complex audience--teens--and their specific needs and interests. This guidebook makes it easy for you to prepare booktalks, plan programs, and create reading lists. As Christian fiction continues to be an increasingly important genre, its inclusion in your library enables you to appeal to a broader spectrum of users. Since 1998, Barbara Walker has been showing media specialists how to develop collections of Christian fiction for children and adults. In her new guides, she has compiled core groups of books, literary series, DVDs, and videos, intended to appeal specifically to children and young adults.

Librarians will be well served by this guide. Walker defines Christian fiction as novels with clear understanding of sin and Jesuss sacrifice as payment for it. This is different from inspirational or spiritual. She answers thorny issues for public libraries, such as censorship, the legalities in spending tax dollars on Christian novels, and marketing to an underserved clientele. Key Book Titles offers an extensive, annotated bibliography, organized by topic (Apocalyptic, Bible, Contemporary, Fantasy, Historical, Mystery, Romance, Thrillers, Westerns). The author analyzes popular series, such as Left Behind and Veggie Tales, and includes a section entitled A Top 50 List of Core Collection Teen Christian Fiction Authors and Biographies. Final chapters review DVDs and videos and list award winners, Christian fiction publishers, and review sources. A thorough, balanced approach.–Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA
