Philip Yancey: Writer, Thinker, Climber
From his website:
“I write books for myself,” says Yancey. “I’m a pilgrim, recovering from a bad church upbringing, searching for a faith that makes its followers larger and not smaller. I feel overwhelming gratitude that I can make a living writing about the questions that most interest me. My books are a process of exploration and investigation of things I wonder about and worry about.” Yancey writes with an eye for detail, irony, and honest skepticism.
David Gatward has written an extraordinarily broad range of material from prayers for teenagers to lurid horror stories. He is committed to encouraging children to enjoy books and develop the imaginative flair essential to that, whether as readers or writers. His website is well worth a look.
Michael’s other life
As well as Christian spirituality, Michael also writes about woodworking (the connection is of course quite well established but that is probably best regarded as coincidence. . . )
He makes handcrafted furniture, specialising in small-scale work, particularly boxes. He has written and sold articles to a number of craft magazines for the past 10 years or so and currently writes occasional features for The Woodworker (http://www.getwoodworking.com)
