Image Magazine 100 Writers of Faith

Image’s "100 Writers of Faith" grew out of our contribution to the flurry of "top 100" lists made in 2000. It covers the twentieth century.

In selecting books for this list, we decided to list an author only once, so that we would end up with 100 different writers. Moreover, only creative writing was considered: fiction, poetry, drama, and creative nonfiction. The works selected had to manifest a genuine engagement with the Judeo-Christian heritage of faith, rather than merely use religion as background or subject matter.

The complete list is published at http://imagejournal.org/page/resource...

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I've added a link for the original list to the listopia description, as a source reference fo those who would like to contribute to this particular list. Hope that's OK.

Jeremy I've just added the rest of the list, so it is now complete.


message 3: by Brent (new)

Brent Thank you, I didn't know how to create a list properly. Except there are now 101 books in the list. I'll have to go through it when it isn't so late.


message 4: by Gregory (new)

Gregory Wolfe As the original author of this list I'm a bit upset at the 26 books that have mysteriously been added to the top 100 -- including some very odd and even disturbing titles. I've written to the person who created this list but if there is any way these additional books can be deleted, I'd greatly appreciate it.
