Christian Living


Life and Faith: According to Classic Christian Authors

For centuries, Christian thinkers, novelists and theologians have explored spiritual thought, encouraging and convicting believers. These men and women of faith are no longer we us, but their wisdom and understanding continue to challenge us through their publications.

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis. Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton. These works are timeless reminders of how faith meets reality.

In honor of these brilliant minds and faithful followers of Christ, here are some of their most thought-provoking quotes for your reflection today.
