ABOUT THE AUTHOR

He currently works in the financial services industry as a municipal bond trader. Scott lives in the Chicago suburbs with his wife and their two sons.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book...and for different reasons than I expected. I ordered it because the foreword is by one of my favorite Christian authors, Philip Yancey, and because the title and premise (ask several well known Christian writers what books have most influenced them other than the Bible) were appealing. I expected to mostly get some ideas for a few more spiritual books to read.

Learning what books (what authors) were used of God to help shape and influence the faith of authors I love was indeed a blessing to me. The transformed life involves an instanteous encournter with the Living Lord, but it also consists of ongoing spiritual encounters with Him that are used as "building blocks" in our own personal transformation. Because of the love and respect I have for so many of the 22 Prominent Christian Leaders referred to, it registers deeply with me when I learn of some spiritual nugget or truth that influenced their thinking as rendered by another spiritual leader of a previous generation. It's more than curiosity that I have. It is attention arresting to read a revelation of truth that readily becomes transparent in their writings and is inevitably shared as a consequence of their own joy and experience. Indeed, indelible ink is spread through the pens of previous men and women who walked with God and lived to write about it. I thank God for the heritage of Faithful leaders.
