About the Author
Andrew Murray (1828-1917) lived and ministered as both a pastor and a writer from the towns and villages of South Africa. Originally written in Dutch, his books were translated into English. As his popularity grew, Murray's books found their way into more than twelve foreign languages during his lifetime.
GILBERT KEITH CHESTERTON (1874-1936) is the author of 100 books, including Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man, which led young atheist C.S. Lewis to become a Christian. He is probably best known for his series about the priest-detective Father Brown and was also known as a poet and a playwright. In spite of his literary accomplishments, he primarily considered himself a journalist, writing over 4,000 newspaper essays for papers such as Illustrated London News and Daily News, as well as his own G. K.'s Weekly.
R.A. Torrey (1856-1928), an evangelist, author and educator, was a prolific writer with over forty books to his credit. He was a major force in helping shape the Bible school now known as Moody Bible Institute.
Thomas Kempis (1380-1471) was a monk at Mt. St. Agnes in the Netherlands. Thomas worked principally at copying and writing. A number of his treatises on the monastic life and little devotional essays have been translated into English including the great devotional work The Imitation of Christ (c.1427).
Charles M. Sheldon (1857-1946) is best remembered for his 1896 masterwork In His Steps, the multi-million copy best-selling Christian novel that continues to challenge readers today. But he was more than a best-selling author: At the turn of the twentieth century, Sheldon was perhaps the best-known clergyman in America, a preacher whose avid support of social reforms grew out of his understanding of the Christian's responsibility to his fellowman.
John Bunyan (1628-1688) was an English preacher and writer. While imprisoned for preaching the Gospel without receiving permission from the Established Church, he wrote The Pilgrim's Progress.
