Ten Essential Women Writers for Christian Readers


One of the great challenges of the publishing industry in the twenty-first century is that it is overwhelmingly dominated by white males. One small part of the necessary corrective measures is for all of us to buy and read more books by authors who are not white males. 

Toward this end, here is a list of ten women authors, whose work you should be intimately familiar with. For this list, we have chosen well-established writers, who either are still alive or who have died within the last 50 years or so. We will run a list of younger women writers next week.

Buy and read everything that these women writers have published!
