The authors below are my top three favorite authors when it comes to Christian fiction. As an author and writer, I love to read and wanted to share with you some of my favorite authors. Also, I included links for some of their books that I’ve especially enjoyed.
As an avid reader, I am always looking to dive into their latest books. Not only do I simply love to read a great story, but I also receive inspiration for my own writing.
I listed the following favorite authors in no particular order.
My Favorite Authors
If you are looking for a great thriller or suspense book, Ted Dekker’s books are fantastic. There is always a Christian theme of some kind in them but always have a great story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I find it very hard to put his books down once I start them.
One of my favorite Ted Dekker books is called “The Circle Series”. There are four different books in this series and they can be read in any order. The Circle Series follows the story of Thomas Hunter. After a bullet grazes his head, he wakes up in another world. When he falls asleep in one world, He wakes up in the other. Every choice he makes affects both worlds.
His Beyond the Circle Series was a follow-up to the original Circle Series and is comprised of two different books- The 49th Mystic and Rise of the Mystics. My original post about the Beyond the Circle Series is called In My Opinion of Ted Dekker.
His newest book is called Play Dead. I haven’t read it yet, but if it is like any of his other books, it will keep you riveted from page one. It was just released May of this year.

Terri Blackstock is fantastic at writing great mystery and suspense novels that have a strong faith element at their core. I’ve read a lot of her books including the Newpoint 911 Series and The Restoration Series which is one of my favorites.
In the Restoration Series, all power and communications worldwide are shutdown for an extended period of time. The story follows the lives of the Branning family in Birmingham, Alabama as they try to live their lives without any electricity or modern conveniences like electricity, cell phones, etc. The story takes place over the course of four different books.

The other 3 books in the Restoration Series include:
- Night Light- The Restoration Series book 2
- True Light- The Restoration Series book 3
- Dawn’s Light- The Restoration Series book 4
The book I just finished reading and thoroughly enjoyed was Smokescreen. The characters are real people with flaws that we all can relate to. Smokescreen brings together two people who have to deal with their past in order to move forward in to their future. For me, it was a great story about learning to forgive as well as trusting God with our problems which can often seem insurmountable to us.

Davis Bunn writes in a variety of different genres including political fiction and historical fiction and romance. Sometimes in conjunction with other authors like Janette Oke in their Song of Acadia Series or Larry Burkett in their book Kingdom Come
Currently, I am reading his Miramar Bay Series. It is a compilation of five different books each of which takes place on a lake or along the coast by some body of water. They are modern-day Christian romances with characters that struggle with real-life issues of faith. Also, each book is a stand-alone.
The first book, Miramar Bay, is a heartwarming romance about God bringing together two different people who are trying to start over in their lives. It is an easy, light read and it’s easy to connect with the characters. Additionally, it will lift your spirits.
