Welcome to Books by Jayna! 
Here you can find quality fiction with a biblical focus. Every book is written with the following in mind: Good writing honors God, the Creator of language and the Author of the most amazing Book ever written. Preachiness is not what makes a tale worth telling. Christians are people, too, and life as a believer in Jesus is so much more than a moral to a story. Christian books should not be defined only by what is not in them, but also by what is. Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, and that’s worth writing about.
"Of making many books there is no end . . ."  ~ Ecclesiastes 12:12
