While, as the above definition shows, "inspirational fiction" is a category and genre larger than religious writing, in the United States and Canada it is often used only to refer to "religious fiction," "faith-based fiction," or more narrowly (and perhaps most often), "Christian fiction".[5] Some inspirational fiction is written to appeal to a general Christian audience, but more often in the United States "inspirational fiction" (and especially "inspirational romance") that can be classified as Christian is written for the Evangelical Protestant market.[6] Although American literature has always been infused with religion,[7] the popularity of Christian romance dates to the 1940s, as leaders of the Evangelical movement attempted to bring their faith into the mainstream both religiously and culturally.[6] Some works of inspirational fiction have also been written to appeal to Roman Catholic or Orthodox Christian readers.
Many books written by non-religious writers in other genres (including literary fiction, children’s fiction, young adult fiction, and even science fiction) have begun to be classified as inspirational fiction.[1] In fact,The Readers Advisory Guide to Genre Fiction,[10] published by the American Library Association, lists "inspirational" as a sub-genre in every type of fiction it discusses, from westerns to thrillers, to romances.
Some American authors, like Mitch Albom, have built strong reputations on books like The Five People You Meet in Heaven and For One More Day, which are marketed as inspirational fiction; and others, like Tuesdays With Morrie and Have a Little Faith, which are marketed more in the category of inspirational non-fiction, or the larger category of inspirational literature, or inspirational writing.
