After wrapping up my hero series last week, I’ve come to a few conclusions. In fiction, at least in Christian romantic fiction of any type, the hero is of utmost importance. He can have characteristics of a variety of archetypes, and we’ll still love him. The same is not true of a heroine.

This week, we’re studying another people-oriented fellow, but he’s not as contentiousness. He’ll seldom ask permission or anything else of a serious nature, and will cut-and-run before he actually has to ask forgiveness for something. Continue Reading →
