I am careful, but let's be honest. There are not enough quality Christian authors out there to select exclusively Christian novels.
I read A Wrinkle in Time with with my sixth graders for a couple of years. Yeah, I know, there are lots of pros and cons to the book. But believe me, I use it to teach a biblical world view. I mean come on, a dark thing covers the earth and the only thing that will defeat it is love. can you get any more Christian than that?
Yep, a parent complained. Of course he waits until I'm done with the book and based his decision solely on reviews and the book cover. My P took care of it, but I just want to shake parents like that. Don't get me wrong, I had my doubts about it when all I had done was read the reviews, but I READ THE BOOK!!!!!
We will make alternate assignments if parents disagree, and I would not try very hard to change any parent's mind about the issue. I'm just griping.
