Bret Lott, a Charleston-based author of best-selling novels, has edited a wonderful collection of Christian fiction in Eyes to See [Thomas Nelson]. Lott has chosen stories from masters such as Fyodor Dostoevsky, Leo Tolstoy, and Flannery O’Connor — joined by eleven other writers whose stories will make the Christian think and reflect . . . and enjoy reading.
This kind of anthology is a good way to introduce these stories and these authors to readers who may never have dared open The Brothers Karamazov or War and Peace. Lott offers brief introductions to the authors (I wish the introductions were a bit more extensive) and has chosen well for Eyes to See.
Lott is right, “A good story can change the way we think, the way we live and love and make our way through this world.”
