I have become a Ted Dekker addict in the past year or two.  I've either read or am waiting to read everything he's written.  Would like any suggestions for authors similar to Dekker, as I love his writing style and subject matter.

Thanks and God bless,

Kris

I know exactly how you feel, Kris! Try Eric Wilson, Sharon Rogers, Matt Bronleewe, Mike Dellosso, and everyone on Deborah K's list. They are all excellent, and come very close to, and even surpass, even the best of Dekker (Wilson, James, and Liparulo especially). Also try Dean Koontz....not technically Christian fiction, though a few of his come very close.

Oh, shoot, I can't believe I forgot Tim Downs! Thank you, Kristin. Yeah, he's quite worth reading, too.
