You can display author's list by using function wp_list_authors

for more info : http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_list_authors

And for author Template Hierarchy see below link



Use function get_users(). It returns an array of all authors. With foreach it is possible to loop over the array and display its content. There are a lot of attributes going with the user object. Here is an example:

$users = get_users();
foreach ($users as $user) 
   echo $user->ID;
   echo $user->display_name;
   echo $user->description;

    This is more flexible than wp_list_authors

    Note: the_author_image is not native wp function

$authors = get_users([
    'fields'  => ['ID', 'display_name'],
    'role'    => 'author',
    'orderby' => 'display_name',

Additionally, if you want to add avatars:

array_walk($authors, function (&$author) {
    $author->avatar_url = get_avatar_url($author->ID);
