Despite acclaim by his peers, historians, Christian statesmen, and literary giants of the past 100 years, MacDonald's life and writings continue to be a source of controversy. Challenging the traditional religious views of his day, MacDonald was continually stretching, reaching, probing, questioning, and searching for truth. Author Michael R. Phillips leads the listener through those controversies to bring a fresh and insightful look at the man, his times, and his work.

Wonderful, absolutely wonderful
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this biography. Its very well researched and very detailed. I have read other MacDonald biographies but this is truly the best. It answers all the questions I have ever had concerning MacDonald. Though I don't agree with all of his theological musings the greatness of the man in his love for the Lord transcends all error. No one ever better described what Christian character should look like in a person than does McDonald in his novels and he apparently lived it out in his own life. I think I'm going to go right back to the beginning and listen to this biography all over again!

Coming closer to George MacDonald
After nearly 40 years of coming to know this author through his writings, it was time for me to learn more about the man's life to find out if I was coming to know him rightly. I was not disappointed. The man I have come to admire and respect, to love, is indeed the true man. Listening to the story of his life was not unlike the experience of drawing from the depths of his nearness to God as is communicated in his books.
