Where did all the Christian writers go?

Where did all the Christian writers go?. Evan Maloney wonders aloud how Christianity, for so long the bedrock of Western literature, seems to have disappeared from contemporary writing. Although the analysis is pretty reductionistic in places, it's still an interesting read. It also reminds us how some "secular vs 'Christian' fiction" debates would have made no sense at all in times gone by. Whenever the Guardian posts any article about religion, the comment thread is usually very frustrating to read, but not this time. People like Marilynn Robinson get a mention!
