CFI novelists make strong showing on list of 'LDS Classics'
SPRINGVILLE, UTAH -- BYU English professor Richard Cracroft has
published a list in Meridian Magazine of what he considers the
"classics" of LDS-based fiction. The criteria he used were simple:
the books must be well-written, reader-tested novels that "will
delight, uplift, inspire and entertain most LDS readers."
Dr. Cracroft wrote, "These novels have risen to the top of the heap
as the books that students like to read, discuss and write about."
Several novels that Dr. Cracroft selected are published by Cedar Fort
Incorporated. They include the works of two long-established authors,
Lee Nelson and Marilyn Brown, as well as the novels of two
up-and-coming writers, Chad Daybell and Alan Mitchell, whose efforts
have made an impact on the LDS market.
The following are the CFI novels Dr. Cracroft specifically mentioned:
