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.
