MYTHOPOEIA is the word used by Rolland Hein to describe the writing styles of the authors reviewed and the analysis is excellent.

C.S. Lewis George MacDonald
G.K. Chesterton J.R.R. Tolkien
John Bunyan Madeleine L'Engle
Charles Williams Walter Wangerin

"Making and experiencing myth are universal human realities. Hein, ever aware of the fact, leads us on a tour of Christian mythmaking from Bunyan to Wangerin. An enlightening, refreshing, and motivating work." J.I. Packer,professor of Theology, Regent College.
