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 read today.

  • Frederick Buechner,  -- (1926-) Unorthodox Christian Minister who became wonderfully gifted novelist. Not to be missed. (Buy his books)

  • 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 literature.

  • George 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.

  • Chaim 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."
