I plan on writing about my Christian faith on Saturdays, and I’ll start off by listing my favorite nonfiction authors.
C.S. Lewis is my absolute favorite. The first time I read Mere Christianity, I couldn’t put it down. The Screwtape Letters and God in the Dock are very good, too. I like many of the essays in G.K.Chesterton’s Heresy and Orthodoxy. Reading Lewis and Chesterton made me realize a lot of current objections to Christianity are not new — they’ve been kicking around for at least a hundred years. I also liked some of the essays in The Joyful Christian by Dorothy L. Sayers. Of modern writers, I like Philip Yancey. I learned a lot from Becoming a Contagious Christian by Bill Hybels and Mark Mittelberg.
