MacGregor on Timeless Authors

Links Sep 08, 2010

Chip MacGregor was asked to take a guess at who would be considered relevant authors 25 years from now. His response is worthy of serious reflection.

“On the nonfiction side, we can see something similar. People a quarter-century in the future will still be reading Frederick Buecher and John R.W. Stott, but they’ve become old-guard. I’d say the current names that will have a lasting impact are Alister McGrath and Brennan Manning (maybe John Piper, but I’m leery). I’m in the minority in thinking Brian McLaren is a flash in the pan, and I don’t think names like John Eldredge and Max Lucado will have staying power beyond their lifetimes, being too tied to our current culture.”
