Gospel Thrillers: Conspiracy and the Bible in U.S. Popular Culture

Inside the Gospel Thrillers

The novels I call "gospel thrillers" span several decades and come from diverse publication context. Some are best-sellers, others some are obscure and forgotten; some are part of series franchises, some are stand-alone novels; some are hard-boiled noir thrillers, other border on the supernatural . I have collected about thirty of them (as of 2020), and in this section of the site I provide detail on what I think constitutes this genre (including what I've excluded from my study) and capsule descriptions of the contents of the novels, focusing on their authors, their main characters, and the "lost gospel" at the heart of their narratives.
