A quick walk through any bookstore reveals one obvious truth: there are more books than anyone can read in a lifetime. With so many books, articles, and Web sites vying for our attention, we must choose wisely. But what does that actually look like? In Writers to Read, Douglas Wilson-someone who's spent a career writing, reading, and teaching others to do the same-introduces readers to nine great authors whose work deserves to be read. Whether it's G. K. Chesterton, C. S. Lewis, or Robert Capon, the well-known and less-known authors Wilson examines are all masters of creative writing and worthy of study and enjoyment. Those looking to become better writers or better readers will find this book to be an invaluable guide for wisely selecting their literary mentors.
Douglas Wilson has an M.A. in philosophy from the University of Idaho and has pastored Christ Church, in Moscow, Idaho, since 1977. He is a prolific author, with more than thirty titles, including two children's books, a selection of poetry, and two biographies. He is best known for his books on education, which have helped to spark the Classical Education movement, and the respected Family Series, which he wrote with his wife on marriage and family.
As well as pastoring Christ Church, Doug serves as the moderator for the Anselm Presbytery of the Confederation of Reformed Evangelical Churches (CREC). He has been involved in founding and teaching at Logos School, New Saint Andrews College, and Greyfriars Hall. He is the editor of Credenda Agenda magazine, which, given the other editors he has to work with, is too much fun. He has contributed to numerous books and magazines (such as Ligonier Ministry's Tabletalk over the years.
