Show your characters living "in the world" with tough experiences. Show a slow transition. Have them ask questions. Have them change their thinking. Show the benefits in their life from their change. Lastly, leave them happier but still flawed in the end.

Turn the lessons into fun, intriguing and dynamic games.  Do you know a quick/easier way to memorize Shakespeare? .... Learn how to juggle at the same time.  LOL :)  

P.S.  In the book Appamada, there is an entire chapter devoted to lessons which I turned into Games :).

All the best.

I would like to know how others have handled the spiritual lessons in a novel without making them seem like lessons. This seems to be the biggest problem I'm having and would appreciate any replies.

God sent me an Angel that healed me of a stroke I had suffered. Then He literally stopped me from committing suicide twice. I am working on a book called "The Blueprint for the Evolution of Humanity - Life's true spiritual secrets revealed" that I have done 14 years of research for. Can anybody help me find a publisher? It is a work ahead of its time, but needs to be read world-wide.

So excited to announce that I have just finished the revisions for my publisher. My novel, Blood of a Stone, is forthcoming from Tuscany Press in the fall of 2014. Set in first century Palestine, Blood of a Stone is the story of a slave named Demetrios who murders his abusive Roman master and escapes to Galilee to create a new life and a new identity. When a close friend exposes his secrets, Demetrios sets out to silence those who could bring him to justice but finds love and redemption instead.

Hi Wayne, I have a somewhat similar book called Sleeping Truth. I couldn't find anyone who wanted it either so I gave up on agents and also decided to give up on publishing companies. Rather than start my own company, however, I am going with Amazon. The one maybe significant difference between us is that you have already published a book and have a track record to present, whereas this is my first novel and I have no track record. If you find someone that likes these kinds of books, let us know. It might help somebody. Sorry that I have no new information to provide.

Greetings colleagues,
Here's my dilemma: I have written what many people have told me is a very good novel. It deals with a biblical theme but from an unusual angle. Its theological perspective is not traditional as it looks at the Exodus story and the Promised Land from the perspective of quality of community rather than geography, theological correctness, or obedience to some divine directive. When I originally tried to shop the book around, I was told that is was very good, but "they" didn't handle this kind of fiction. I formed my own publishing company to get it in print, and it won the silver IPPY medal in 2011. I've sold several hundred copies, so I'm not under water.
I have not been able to find many books in this genre that is a retelling, a broadening, or an imaginative treatment of a biblical or other well known religious story. People with flexible faith positions find the book inspiring, but those who are more conservative might find it upsetting (although that is not my intent).
  More info about Community of Promise can be found at entospress.com.
  I am getting ready to publish a new novel, The Wisdom Weaver, in the fall. This brings together ancient feminist goddess wisdom with the Genesis stories.
  Now, here is my question to the group: Does anyone know where the market for such books might be found? By the way, I am not interested in arguing theology. This is a playful fictional account that simply has the potential to broaden perspective for those who find that a valuable exercise. Thanks for thinking about this with me.

Hello everyone,

I would like to share with you my newest short story. Although it's fiction but it's also about the spirit of Christmas which makes it perfect for this group. 

I hope you will have the time to read it and share with me your thoughts. :) Thank you for your time.

Best Regards,
