Which authors do you not recommend?

For me, I do NOT recommend much of Gilbert Morris' work, it gets sort of sketchy, even though it is considered 'Christian'.

I wouldn't recommend Ted Dekker but I know a lot of people disagree with me there :- But I know, when I read a book written by Ted Dekker alone that I disagreed with what he wrote and felt that it really wasn't a "Christian" book - seeing as he only mentioned God once or twice and all the glory went to the people.

Cynthia Voigt.

Her books always seemed depressing, cynical, and bitter.

He is one of my favorite authors! :shame:

I would not recommend Tim LaHaye's unless he is writing with Jerry Jenkins. If LaHaye is not writing with Jenkins, it is like cake without the icing.

Can I ask what book you read? :-k


G.A. Henty puts me to sleep. The only time I never finished a book and read the end was when I started Treasure of the Incas by him. I knew how it would end after the third chapter, anyway.

Henty's books may all follow the same formula but they have lots of good historical information. :shame:


I don't recommend T. L. Tedrow's children's books. Ugh. :anxious:

I've just read the first 5 books of a series by him last week and I think they're pretty good so far, and they do seem really Christian to me.

I like Gilbert Morris's 'Seven Sleepers' series, even though he kept mixing up the characters' ages. :-

I absolutely HATED 'Useful Idiots' by Jan Mark. It was everything I hate: it was dull, depressing, the bad guys won, and it was morally wayward. X_X I also found Orson Scott Card's work to be extremely morally warped and depressing. :noway:

I read a work of Orson Scott Card recently, and it wasn't depressing at all. :-k

Well. Okay. The beginning was. And the middle. And nearing the end.

...it had a happy ending? :anxious:

Good thing that doesn't have any bearing on it being Christian or not... :anxious:

Yes, I am disagreeing... Can I ask which book you read? And how you thought it was all toward the people and not God? Cause, I read the whoel Circle Trilogy and understood the whole analogy he was portraying. Definitely Christian. Now, some of his other books... depends, honestly. You have to look deep. Not everything is right there to show you. Cause, with Ted Dekker being a border-line Christian author, even you may not be able to see what he meant with the Christian side of his writing.
