You sit down after supper (or maybe even with it) and reach for the remote. The evening news comes on with its entirely predictable formula of natural and man-made disasters, venality, sports and celebrity misdeeds, and weather. For the rest of the evening you may find yourself alternately bored or angry at the steady manipulation of appetites from watching a series of ads interspersed by snippets of melodrama and situation comedy...whose situations grow ever more bizarre. You have wondered why you continue to do watch this kind of stuff!   It seems that anything would be better.

Actually there is a lot that is better. Books, for example, are better.  Not too far in the past pretty much all  literature and poetry were, quite simply, Christian poetry and literature -- and every category of literature and poetry, whether fantasy, fiction, science-fiction, romance, short story, novels or poetry, dealt in some way with Christian teachings and values.  All authors were Christian authors, and one could feel safe that what one brought home from the bookstore was not only a good tale, well told, but one firmly fixed in the best traditions of Christian thought and values. 

Of course, this is not the case any more.   However, among the vast number of books written and published each year, there are still many which are classics, providing insight and entertainment, leisure and leave-taking from daily care, enlightenment and edification in their story and characters.  A wide variety of Christian authors are still producing fiction and poetry of outstanding quality.  Their works may not readily available at the major book outlets, but we will try to see that they are available here at t-CBC.com.  Please let us know if a book you think should be here is not here yet, and we will go searching for a supplier willing to work with us in such a way that the book can be listed.

If you wish to satisfy your desire for good Christian fiction, good Christian poetry, books about good Christian fiction and poetry, and books featuring Christian themes and Christian values our growing assortment of books may be "just the ticket".  Whether it is fiction, science-fiction, historical novels, poetry or books about Christian fiction that you seek, you will find it here at The Christian Book Corner.  Our carefully chosen and ever growing selection of Christian fiction, Christian poetry and books about Christian fiction and poetry will meet the most discerning tastes in those areas. Our suppliers are chosen from among the best publishers, whose standards are time tested. Please browse at your will among out selections, remembering that all of them are offered at our everyday discounts, and that the “store” online here never closes.

A Ballad of Sixty-Six DaysA Ballad of Sixty-Six DaysThis magnificent epic poem will warm the heart, capture the imagination and inspire the soul. Littleton recounts a compelling series of events within the brief span of sixty-six days that Charles Wesley spent on St. Simons Island in 1736. Poignantly uncovered here is the deep and pious spirit of a man who helped transform the religious culture of the world.
A Sudden CertaintyA Sudden CertaintyYou will not find in this book poetry that is explicitly Catholic or explicitly devotional. Instead Fr. Longenecker tries in his "Priest Poems" to find God locked in the ordinary experiences of life, creating moments of insight that are 'sacramental.' 
Animal KingdomAnimal Kingdom"Pavel Chichikov sees the natural through the mystical eyes of the supernatural....This is to see things as they are meant to be seen. It is to see God's presence in the weaving of a spider's web or in the flight of a bird. It is to see as Gerard Manley Hopkins saw. It is to paint inscapes. It is to see truly."
Cause of JoyCause of JoyIt has been said that the "South" is not a really a place, but instead, a state of mind. Ellison Turner's book of poems, although not about the "South," nevertheless is rimed with sentiments from his southern roots. In this small tome, Turner has revealed bits of his life's journey; part subtle, part direct, yet totally honest.  Life - sometimes painful, often disappointing, rewarding and fulfilling, but in the end, like Turner's title, a "Cause of Joy."
Charles Dickens: The Last of the Great MenCharles Dickens: The Last of the Great MenChesterton wrote this literary biography as a defense of, homage to, and hospitable criticism of Charles Dickens. As with almost everything he wrote, CHARLES DICKENS: THE LAST OF THE GREAT MEN bursts with brilliant, tangential musings on all things. 
Chronicles of Narnia Box SetChronicles of Narnia Box SetThe set includes all seven volumes of the classic, allegorical, and greatly beloved children's fantasy series known as The Chronicles of Narnia: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE; THE HORSE AND HIS BOY; PRINCE CASPIAN; THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER; THE SILVER CHAIR; and THE LAST BATTLE.  Also included is Lewis's "prequel" volume, THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW.
Church of the Kevin, TheChurch of the Kevin, TheA short book combining comic material from the author's newsletter for his nationally performed comedy murder mysteries with somewhat more serious essays and some satirical poems. "THE BOOK OF THE KEVIN (or whatever it's called) is a literary revolution. Everyone should read this book. I intend to read it myself. That's how strongly I feel about it." ----Dale Ahlquist, president and co-founder of the American Chesterton Society and the author of many books on GKC.
Clare's Costly CookieClare's Costly CookieNine year old Clare, a thunderbolt in pigtails, joyfully invites children to experience her transformation from a strong-willed, self-absorbed child to a faithful follower of Jesus. With grace and courage she offers to Him the most meaningful gift she possibly can: her self-will. Clare, in her inimitable way, models for children that following Jesus Christ and striving for true holiness are worth any cost.
Dappled Things:  1yr subscription (in USA)Dappled Things: 1yr subscription (in USA)Dappled Things, a quarterly of art, ideas, and faith, consistently offers quality writing that takes advantage of the religious, theological, philosophical, artistic, cultural, and literary heritage of the Catholic Church to inform and enrich contemporary culture.
DemonsDemonsA small circle of revolutionaries, dissatisfied with the present state of provincial Russia and the wider world, place their faith in radical political theologies with hopes that the structures of society and being can be changed. Dostoevsky's theological anxieties become strikingly manifest in this particular novel, and DEMONS gains profundity because the novelist does not choose to combat nihilism by fleeing from it, but, rather, by giving it full narrative expression.
Divining DivinityDivining DivinityThe poems in this volume are not only as sensitive and fine as anything by Emily Dickenson, they also have the brilliant structure and playful wordsmanship of Gerard Manley Hopkins, with an endearing quiet sense of the sublime—and all of them offered up in a humble attitude of praise. 
Family HappinessFamily HappinessPoignant, timeless story about two lovers who reach a state of married happiness, lose it, try to find—do find—a replacement in the pseudo-contentment of society, and finally carve out an authentic definition of family happiness. Through the sensitive eyes of young Masha, the reader delves into an intimate view of love, happiness, and the trouble that accompanies all human bliss. 
Finding GraceFinding GraceComing of age and falling deeply in love for the first time in the early 1970's -- in the wake of the 60's "sexual revolution" and the historic Roe v. Wade decision -- presents true challenges for young people who are trying to live chastely. In this engaging novel, the 13 yr old Grace realizes that without the help of God, the Blessed Mother, and all the saints in Heaven, navigating the thorny path to sainthood would be an almost insurmountable task.
Following the LightFollowing the Light"On a gray March afternoon in 1998, driving through the mountains of North Carolina, I experienced a brilliant light that I knew was God. Immediately, a hardened atheist was transformed into a believer in Jesus Christ with the knowledge that the Catholic Church is the one true Church. I also recognized that this was the light that had been calling me in nature and in the writing of my poetry."
GodGodA series of Biblical meditations with special emphasis on the hidden core of the Bible, the Name of God. The author claims no special Scriptural expertise, but he approaches the Bible as a human being, as a priest, and as a specialist in the drama of William Shakespeare and the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins.
Grain of WheatGrain of WheatSet in the second century of the early Christian Church, Grain of Wheat  takes you into the heroic lives of the early Christians. Along the way, it shows the beauty and dignity of the Christian family, along with the power of the vocation to celibacy — a charism lived not only by priests and bishops, but by many of the lay faithful. These brave men and women, both single and married, followed Christ and spread his Kingdom while remaining in society..

In the Saguaro ForestIn the Saguaro ForestA Saguaro Forest surrounds us all. The world is the Saguaro Forest -- a place of beauty and wonder, ever pointing beyond itself to the greater beauty and wonder of its First Cause and Final End, while at the same time confronting us with the discomfort and danger of its thorns, reminding us that this is no Eden, that for the present we partake of paradise only by Hope.
JuniaJuniaAs the beautiful daughter of a Roman senator, Junia enjoyed the best that life had to offer in second century Rome. She was grateful and anxious to please her family, a dutiful and obedient young woman of privilege.
