Favourite Christian themed Authors

Post by classicsnob »

Dostoevsky
A great defender for the Christian faith in my opinion. Fyodor disliked atheism and especially negative nihilism which partly led to the Communist State in Russia. (and of course European liberalism plus Marxism)

How many people now refer to the Brothers Karamazov as epic literature? As well as Crime and Punishment. I think these two books are essential reading for intellectual Christians.

I need to read The Idiot because of the Christ figure main character.
He was of course the great psychologist too. (Dostoevsky)

Bernard Lonergan. He has written volumes. I like his Method in Theology and Insight.

I don't really read Christian themed authors but I read a book once about a prostitute who met a godly man and fell for him so hard that she abandoned her profession. I can't remember the name of the book or the author but I would love to read it again. The protagonist was called Michael.

Karen Kingsbury is my favorite Christian themed writers. I have not found a book by her that I don't like.

I really like Ted Dekker as an author. He's a Christian and many of his books are rather allegorical.
