Chuck Norris writes Christian books, articles

In 2004, Chuck Norris wrote his spiritual memoir, Against All Odds, for B&H, the publishing arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. Since then, he has “co-written” two Christian western novels, The Justice Riders and A Threat to Justice, which the publisher describes as a “heroic action tale of good versus evil, with elements of faith and romance.” Fiction is the fastest-growing segment of the Christian publishing industry, and there’s a glut of Christian genre novels right now, from Westerns, to thrillers to romances. Typically these books are “clean” versions of their secular counterparts, with a few scenes of prayer thrown in and, almost inevitably, a weepy moment where a main character falls to his knees and confesses that he is a sinner who needs Jesus. Partly because the books are so formulaic, having the name of a mainstream star on the cover is a great way to stand apart from the competition.

In 2006, Norris also began writing a column for the far-right Christian web site Worldnetdaily. While he was generally good-natured about them (while noting that ” some are just not appropriate for kids.”) he also fretted a bit about their message, writing, “In the history of this planet, there has only been one real Superman. It’s not me.” To drive home the point, he added, “There was a man whose tears could cure cancer or any other disease, including the real cause of all diseases – sin.”

    i do try to tell my friends at school (even people i dont like to much and dont even know too much) about Jesus Christ and how he died on the cross and rose again on the third day to save our sins. It is quite difficult, but i do my best. I am in a dance studio “Angel Feet dance studio” it is a christian dance studio, i’m not quite old enough yet but in a few years i will be in the “ministry team” they go and minister to differant places and churches, they are going to England this year. I have saved quite a few souls, my mom was a babysiter and most, well pretty much all, didn’t know Jesus. I told them about him, most of them listened, a few didn’t. I have even gotten older people to get to know Jesus (including my grandpa). Just wanted to let everyone know that it doesn’t matter your age, you can tell EVERYONE you meet and know about Jesus! I am only 11, even if you are younger, you can still make a differance!
