Baker More Than Words: Contemporary Writers on the Works That Shaped Them

Great writing has the power to stimulate our imagination, generate creativity, and help us make sense of the world. In this fascinating compilation, twenty-one popular Christian authors share stories of how they were influenced by literary masters and their works:
  • Learn why reading the fairy tales of Hans Christian Anderson helped Walter Wangerin Jr. deal with life in a troubled family.
  • See how Fyodor Dostoevsky's vocation of a passionate desire for God made a difference to Eugene H. Peterson at a critical point in his life.
  • Discover why the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer were instrumental in keeping Richard Foster from abandoning the Christian faith.
  • Uncover why John Donne forever changed the way Philip Yancey thought about pain.
A short reading guide at the end of each chapter serves as an invitation for you to explore these classic works further, and find new vision, ideas, and inspiration.
