This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — Who is the best author of all time?
Djere delivers the opinion of the Council, joined by Connie, Steve, Josh, and MC-B:

C.S. Lewis — his worlds and interests are many, vast, and diverse. His plots and characters are convincing. His fiction engaging, his nonfiction convicting.


Tom concurs, joined by David, and MC-B:

C.S. Lewis — an engaging yet convicting body of work with individual pieces suitable to any level of sophistication.


Mike dissents, joined by Erin:

Henri Nouwen. Such amazing insights and such a humble spirit.


Job dissents:

James Michener. A man totally devoted to the task, he never spent a day without traveling, learning about and then writing about this globe.


Chloe dissents:

T.S. Eliot. His intricate and masterful poetry presents new layers of powerful imagery and cultural truth with each and every reading.


Erin dissents:

Frank Herbert. Amazing, creative, poetic, intuitive.


Kaitlin played no part in the determination of this issue.


Next time: What is the most overrated band?
