A common complaint of Christians is that there are no great living Christian writers. To some, it seems, the Christian imagination died with C.S. Lewis and Walker Percy.
Yet, while there is no one of the stature of Percy at the moment, there’s a lot of great work being done by novelists and poets alike that take faith seriously. As I have noted elsewhere, the category of Christian fiction or poetry is problematic. Nevertheless, over the next few months, I’ll be introducing readers to twenty writers whose work shows an understanding of orthodox Christianity and excellence in craft.
I’ll begin next week with a poet few have heard of: Amit Majmudar.
