An 365-day anthology of readings from one of the most influential writers of all time, George MacDonald, compiled by CS Lewis himself.
MacDonald was a major Christian writer of the late nineteenth, early twentieth centuries. He influenced nearly everyone who was a major twentieth century writer (including Lewis Carroll, WH Auden, JRR Tolkien, Walter de la Mare, and CS Lewis. Not only was he a pioneer in the fantasy fiction genre, laying the path for people like Tolkien to write Lord of the Rings, but also a major Christian thinker, which influenced Lewis profoundly.
Lewis, in fact, wrote that MacDonald was his ‘master’, and said ‘I know hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continually close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself.’
These words will challenge and uplift you, and illuminate the faith which underpins all of CS Lewis’s popular and enduring writing.
