Other Favorite Authors
Like the better-known C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien, Harold Bell
Wright attempted to communicate spiritual values through imaginative
stories. As far as I know, he is the only such author to use the
American Western (such as
Zane Gray and
Louis L'Amour) as his medium.
Below is a list of outstanding writers who have used science fiction,
fantasy and myth to convey spiritual messages--and whose works are still
Frederick Buechner, -- (1926-)
Unorthodox Christian Minister who became wonderfully gifted novelist.
Not to be missed. (Buy
G. K. Chesterton --
(1874-1936) Called "The Apostle of Common Sense," "The Apostle
of the Common Man," and, by some, "The greatest writer of the 20th
century." A really great website by The American Chesterton Society.
C. S. Lewis
-- (1898-1963) Probably the best and most popular religious fiction ever
written. His fiction includes, The Chronicles of Narnia (for
children of all ages), the
Space Trilogy (Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, That Hideous
Strength), Till We Have Faces, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, etc.
He also wrote non-fiction theology, plus critical books on classical
McDonald -- (1824-1905). C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles
Williams, and other famous writers quoted McDonald and modeled at
least some of their stories after his. Michael R. Phillips has
made McDonald accessible by condensing (very much needed) and
editing several, for us modern impatient readers.
Potok -- (1929-2002) Wonderful Jewish writer. His novels
about personal faith include The Chosen, The Promise, My Name is Asher
Lev, The Gift of Asher Lev, Davita's Harp, The Book of Lights, etc.
J. R. R.
Tolkien -- (1892-1973) Best known for The Hobbit and The Lord of
the Rings. I confess, I haven't read his books, but I know his fans
are many and dedicated. Perhaps after I retire, I can dig into his
huge and complicated stories.
Charles Williams -- (1886-1945). Wonderfully descriptive
language and far-out imaginative stories. Williams was one of most
famous of the three "Inklings,"
a literary society set up by C. S. Lewis, which also included J. R. R. Tolkien. The titles: Many Dimensions,
Shadows of Ecstasy, The Place of the Lion, War in Heaven, Descent
into Hell, The Greater Trumps, and All Hallows Eve. Not for the
faint of heart, they have been called "spiritual thrillers."
