Descrizione

C. S. Lewis wrote of George MacDonald: "I know hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continually close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself." Lewis also claimed that everything he wrote was influenced by this Scottish pastor and novelist who lived a century before Lewis. George MacDonald serves as an act of appreciation, with Lewis gathering 365 of the best and most profound lines from his mentor as well as providing a preface detailing the impact MacDonald had on Lewis's own literary and spiritual career. Ranging from "Inexorable Love" to "God at the Door," these words will instruct and uplift, like they did for C.S. Lewis himself.

    I'd never heard of George Macdonald until listening to this book. He was a wise person. I appreciate how CS Lewis acknowledged him as a 'source' of his own. It is apparent after reading Macdonald's words that Lewis was greatly influenced by him. I'll be returning to this book as a source of wisdom the rest of my life.

    Interesting excerpts of the 19th century author who inspired both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Although pushed out of a Calvinist parish for his unorthodox views, George MacDonald (1824-1905) remained a Christian write of fiction and thought throughout his life. Most of his works of fiction and fantasy are forgotten today, but his original concepts of fantastical worlds led to the creation of both Narnia and Middle Earth by later, and better known, writers. His characters were three dimensional, and thus although they might on the surface be cruel and sadistic, the reader can also see that they may be pitied or even respected.An interesting work and a good introduction to "Scotch Christianity."

    My reaction has been just the reverse from that of "thomasandmary." Within a few years of discovering Lewis, I let him open to me almost all the authors he loved. But I never learned to appreciate MacDonald.This anthology, though, has been wonderful to me for over 30 years now. I still find myself often quoting him, sometimes thinking I am quoting CSL,

    I thought that I would love this book since I admire both authors, but it was a huge disappointment. I finally gave up on reading it and will put it in our church library. It seems as though George MacDonald wrote things in a lot more complicated way than necessary.
