List of Protestant Authors

This list of Protestant authors presents a group of authors who have expressed membership in a Protestant denominational church or adherence to spiritual beliefs which are in alignment with Protestantism as a religion, culture, or identity. The list does not include authors who, while considered or thought to be Protestant in faith, have rarely expressed or declared their affiliation in a public forum. Anglicanism, which is a hybrid of Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, and Eastern Orthodoxy has not been included due to the diversified foundational beliefs of the church. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are also not included.

    My list of things I never pictured myself saying when I pictured myself as a parent has grown over the years.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    The praise of ancient authors proceeds not from the reverence of the dead, but from the competition and mutual envy of the living.
    Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679)
