Authors & Poets

If you asked a child what an author is (assuming this child can speak and has a decent vocabulary), she'd likely tell you that an author is someone who writes books. If you then asked her what a poet is, she'd probably respond that a poet is someone who writes poems, silly. As people who try hard to be sensible and intelligent, we would be compelled to agree with her.

Why, then, do modern critics, philosophers and educators argue so vehemently that authorship is something altogether different? Why the perceived need to attribute creation to something other than the creator? Ah, the child might say (if she were particularly bright and especially sensible), that question answers itself.

As the Author of all things, God demands recognition. Man, on the other hand, always trying harder than before to dissociate himself from the ultimate Judge of the universe, will even deny his own ability to create if it means that God can't, either. Of course, this flawed logic simply means those who hold it are far less sensible and intelligent than they believe themselves to be, not that God doesn't maintain Authorship of the world and everything in it.

Without authors, Exodus Books wouldn't exist. We depend on selling the work of writers, including educators, historians, theologians, philosophers, poets, mathematicians and novelists (especially poets). Reading their own works is a good way to know what these men and women believe, but reading about them as people can be just as helpful, especially for the work of interpreting sometimes abstruse statements. We hope these biographies help.

Review by C. Hollis Crossman
C. Hollis Crossman used to be a child. Now he is a husband and father, teaches adult Sunday school in his Presbyterian congregation, and likes weird stuff. He might be a mythical creature, but he's definitely not a centaur.Read more of his reviews here.
