Others include:
1. Os Guinness
2. Dorthy Sayers
3. Nancy Pearcy
4. Dallas Willard
5. Chuck Colson
6. Parker Palmer
7. Orthberg
8) Scott Peck (Road less traveled)
9. Quintillian [I think this is more broadly as he’s not a Christian author]

The book: Readings for Life: 100 Christian College Teacher Reflect on the Book that Shaped Their Lives (link). It doesn’t get the greatest reviews but seems ideal for a college teacher or any teacher for that matter than wants to take a 20,000 or 1,000 foot look at a number of Christian books that could be influential in the lives of college students or adults.
