    Try "Ctrl Alt Revolt" by Nick Cole.
    I'd say this is LitRPG written by a Christian, as opposed to Christian litRPG. There isn't any specific Christian content, but there's definitely some world-view stuff going on.
    The book was banned by its traditional publisher for daring to suggest anything negative about abortion (from the point of view of the antagonist no less), so the author self-published it and it soared to the top of the Amazon charts.

    I dabbled with that idea a long time ago, as it happens. Now I'm writing retro-litRPG-comedy, because who needs genres anyway?

    I enjoyed reading The Game by Terry Schott, who I don't think is a Christian but the story looks at religion developing in a Matrix-y cyber world, which was interesting to read as a Christian. It looks like it's free on kindle too, as the first in a series.

    Or there's The God Hater by Bill Myers, which is a Christian book, albeit a few years old now (well pre-dating the current crop of litRPG). I think this was similar to the way I had imagined the idea that I never went back to it, but maybe, if I ever work through my existing projects, I'll think about Christian litRPG...

    I've considered writing one. As a growing genre with a revenous readership it's a great potential money-maker, plus I like games, so I could be a genuinely good fit. I have no shortage of writing projects though.
    It's also a genre that could benefit from shining a little of Christ's light.

    I can say that I really enjoyed the first book in Steve's series. Have yet to catch up with Bit #2 though.

    This is very good news!
    We can build Cristian LitRPG clan for writers, based on CGC forum and help each other.
    I can't write fast, because i need to translate my text rus to eng (It need half an year and 17 000$ to translate one book  Shocked  bounce  ), but i can be helpful in other ways. Book trailers for example or some yuotube promo intro.
