    Who are your favourite Christian Authors? I have several that I like and tend to get whatever books they bring out without being to worried about what is on the book jacket because anything they write is garanteed to be interesting.

    In that basket I would put anything by -

    Charles Swindoll,
    Floyd McClung,
    Tony Campolo,
    Billy Graham,
    Adrian Plass,

    How abou you?

    I have to admit, I'm a fiction nut. My favorite Christian fiction authors would include:

    C. S. Lewis
    Francine Rivers
    Jane Kirkpatrick
    Lisa Samson
    Nancy Moser
    Liz Curtis Higgs
    Linda Hall

    the list could go on and on...
