    What does it mean to be a Christian writer? Is one restricted or set free by truth and faith?

    I once read a mystery novel by a now-unknown-to-me author that another mystery novelist then living in rural Arkansas had given to me as a gift. I read it in the car on the way back through Missouri to Wisconsin. It was a mystery novel without murder. I believe faith was a component of the story. I went along the mystery of the story's trail, in a state of curiosity, appetite, suspense. I wonder whether Christian paradox might apply. Pair o' Dockers, as suburbanites might come to think of it and glance approvingly at their own brown shoes Wednesday evenings at Church.

    Is one restricted or set free by truth and faith? I have not considered this topic as fiction writing is concerned, but I have considered it as the role memory plays in writing. Does memory guide or dictate creative decisions in design and composition?
