What is Catholic Fiction?

There is incredible breadth amongst definitions of "Catholic Fiction." For our purposes, we have provided a variety of selections -- from historical fiction to mysteries to apocalyptic thrillers -- yet all offering the message of redemption without straying from the "mind of the Church."

 

Our Criteria?

A great story, well told, consistently in line with Catholic Philosophy and thought, and though often delving into the realities of evil, it is clear that God always has the final Word. The books listed have either been read by our staff or critically reviewed by trusted sources.

...from Michael D. O'Brien                                   Featured Author

Apocalyptic -- Literary -- Theological/Philosophical -- Political -- Historical

Arguably the master of contemporary Catholic fiction, O'Brien has been compared to Fyodor Dostoevsky and Leo Tolstoy as being among the greatest faith-based literary writers of all time. His understanding of the human person, and man's place in the universe approaches that of John Paul II, and each novel is rich in Catholic philosophy and thought, which is masterfully interwoven within plots, characters, and scenarios in a manner which many readers may not even recognize as being overtly "Catholic."  His "Children of the Last Days" apocalyptic series/theme is contained in the first five books listed below. The listing given is a suggested order of reading the books, leading with "Father Elijah" (O'Brien's best-selling novel), then leading into a series of prequels and parallel stories.

Apocalyptic -- Suspense/Thriller -- Theological/Philosophical -- Political

THE DOMINION PROJECT: Described as "A supernatural thriller with religious and geopolitical themes," this seven-book series weaves vivid supernatural imagery within contemporary geopolitical scenarios, all viewed through the eyes and experiences of characters of diverging beliefs and backgrounds. It is offered as a challenge to the "conventional evangelical Christian end-times scenario" which has been prevailing in recent years, as well as a sort of "literary antidote" to the increasingly popular books and films which promote disinformation and misunderstanding into the nature and history of the Catholic Christian Church. It is the author's hope that Dominion is entertainment that is edifying for the faithful, evangelizing for the lapsed, and thought-provoking for the skeptic. (Note: In the interest of full disclosure, the Dominion series is published by Sacrata Dei Press, the owner of this website.)

The Arx Publishing imprint is a bastion for authors and works whose high literary style, subject matter, and Christian values are often at odds with prevailing popular culture.
