At Castle Gate Press, we publish fiction with a Christian Worldview.
You might ask, “But you’re a Christian publisher. Don’t you publish Christian Fiction?”
If there is a very definite faith element, the novel is Christian fiction.
If there is no mention of faith, but all moral issues in the story are viewed from a Christian point of view (i.e. gambling/lying/stealing/extra-marital affairs etc. are presented as morally wrong, the ends don’t justify the means, immorality is not painted as good) and it doesn’t contain excessive violence, gratuitous sexual scene, or profanity, then it is fiction with a Christian worldview.
If the characters are Christian, but their faith is not a part of the theme or plot, it is fiction with a Christian worldview. This type of book, however, could fit under either a Christian or a general market publisher, therefore it is often called a crossover book.
Since a part of our mission here at Castle Gate Press is to promote a Christian worldview in the general marketplace, we prefer to use the more general term and state that we publish fiction with a Christian worldview because it encompasses any novel with morals that line up with Scripture.
In other words, we publish both Christian fiction AND fiction with a Christian worldview. Either way, you can be guaranteed that books from Castle Gate Press will be quality fiction which will not offend Christian beliefs.
