who's your fav?

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

Well, unless you mean modern authors, (As in people who are still alive and all that) I'd say C.S. Lewis. :)

I like Ted Dekker too, but I don't really have any favorites.

Matt Redman, really. I like C.S. Lewis, too. But I've found the most practical application for my life at this point has been from Matt's books.

These two are my favorites because I have been reading their books since I started reading Christian fiction.

Randy Alcorn, John Piper, C.S. Lewis (for fiction and non-fiction)

I'd have to say those are the prominant ones that come to mind at the moment, though I have hundreds :D

DEFINITLY I've read about 49 of his books \:D/ . Oh also C.S. Lewis and I guess J.R.R. Tolkien is pretty good.

It's so hard to choose a favourite! :( I love Dee Henderson's books and Linda Windsor's books, and Robin Jones Gunn is an old favourite. Of course, I have to include Sigmund Brouwer and Ted Dekker.

I like so many authors I can't just narrow it down to one or two.
Female: Terri Blackstock, Lori Wick, Dee Henderson, Francine Rivers and Lisa Tawn Bergren.
Male: Randy Alcorn, Ray Blackston ( Flabbergasted, Delerious Summer, Lost in Rooville), and Todd and Jedd Hafer. If you want to laugh until you cry the last three guys will take you there in their books!
:rofl2:
Evangeline - I think the author that you're talking about is Melody Carlson.
