Christian Fiction - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Option Number: [4]

Christian Fiction is a very popular genre with a range of readers. These titles are engaging, well-written, and wholesome fiction with Christian themes and messages that appeal to all ages. Contains many of the top bestselling authors as well as a mix of sub-genres.



The heartwarming story of an unforgettable encounter from Ron Marasco — actor, screenwriter, college professor, and author of About Grief and Notes to an Actor, an ALA Outstanding Book.

No one expected Barley to have an encounter with the Messiah. He was homeless, hungry, and struggling to survive in first-century Judea. Most surprisingly, he was a dog. But through Barley’s eyes, the story of the teacher from Galilee comes alive in a way we’ve never experienced before.


Customer Reviews

“Through the touching tale of a stray dog who witnesses the ministry of Jesus, Marasco’s (Notes to an Actor; About Grief) first novel offers an unusual perspective on Christianity’s beginnings.”

— Library Journal (starred)

“Barley, the main character of this novel, is a sweet and loyal companion who readers will love . . . it is a good story with a twist at the end that readers may not see coming. It is worth the read for anyone looking for a new take on the common life during the time of Christ.”
