Christian Mystery Novels With Faith-Based Justice & Order: Book Guide Announced

Christian readers can explore the mystery genre with a newly announced book guide from author Betty Johansen, at Eagerly Waiting.

Betty Johansen’s new guide to Christian mystery novels - available on the Eagerly Waiting website - helps readers find whodunnit fiction titles that avoid gore, explicit scenes, and foul language while embracing a sense of God’s justice and order.

While many mainstream secular mysteries contain elements of sex, violence, and profanity, Betty Johansen explores faith-based alternatives that uplift the spirit.

According to a recent report from the Guardian, whodunnit mysteries and crime novels are a perennially popular genre, with over 18.1 million books sold in a single year. Recognizing the fact that discerning Christian readers want to find fiction that resonates with their core values, Betty Johansen discusses faith-based reading choices.

“Some of the mysteries written these days are so packed with gore and foul language that I don’t even want to read them, much less pay for them,” says Betty. “I love the cozy mystery genre, but what I really like to read is a good, solid Christian mystery.”

Betty’s first response was to write some of her own, including the recently published "Lilli’s Song" - which focuses on a mysterious UFO sighting in a small Texas town - and "Hawaiian Wildflower," also set in Texas. The latter story centers around the complexities of a Christian marriage and the nature of real love.

The author’s debut title, “Darkness Under His Feet" - which can be accessed through her website - focuses on an accusation of murder against the editor of a local paper, exploring themes of problems within the charismatic belief system, drawing on the Betty's own experience over several decades.

Within the guide, Betty also recommends other Christian mysteries, including works by Tamar Myers, Terri Blackstock, and Vanetta Chapman. Readers will learn some of the core elements that define a Christian whodunnit title, such as fun, respectability, a satisfying sense of justice, and a recognition of God’s order that feeds the reader’s heart and mind.
