The nine writers that Wilson has picked are G.K. Chesterton, H.L. Mencken, P.G. Wodehouse, T.S. Eliot, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, R.F. Capon, Marilyn Robinson and N.D. Wilson (the last one being his son).

A mix of (for me) well-known Christian writers and a few I haven’t read at all (Capon, Mencken, N.D. Wilson)

It’s strength: Wilson focuses on the authors key thoughts and influences and discuss that “topic” often bringing in others authors that have influenced the particular writer. It’s weakness: It’s too short and covers to many things without going into depths with any topic or theme.

His treatment of Wodehouse and Chesteron is brilliant writing. Loved it. C. S. Lewis and Tolkien I know well and there wasn’t much new there. ( )
