Schaeffer, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, John Piper, John MacArthur, Paul David Tripp, Jen Wilkin, J. I. Packer, Chuck Colson, Frank Peretti, Max Lucado, Joni Eareckson Tada, and D. A. Carson."

After public discourse about the policy, Crossway announced that it would reverse the decision. Notes References External links Official website . Discover the Crossway popular books.
