Last summer I posted my first Author Spotlight, in which I flailed about Ted Dekker. Has it really been over a year since that spotlight post? It's high time for another, this one on another of my top favorite authors of all time . . .
Billy Bannister taught me to fight with truth as my sword and faith as my shield.
Bonnie Silver exemplified trust in God and a steadfast purity.

Basically? Go read them all.
His books are the perfect illustration of this quote:
"Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth." -Alburt Camus
By taking us to other worlds, he shows the truth of good and evil, of hope persisting in the midst of doubt, of love spanning time and heartbreak and bottomless rifts. Maybe it sounds sappy, but his stories are truly an inspiration to me.
And now I'll stop talking, because "Too much information can make your brain choke."
Have you read any of Bryan Davis's books? Do you have a favorite book or character of his? And if you're new to this author, do any of the abovementioned novels pique your interest?
P.S. This is my 101st post! Crazy!
