Publisher's Summary

George MacDonald's stories and sermons have been like a magic pool of rejuvenating waters. Those who wash themselves in his prose cleanse their imaginations. For many, this begins a process of new faith or deeper appreciation of Christ. That was the path the beloved Christian author C.S. Lewis took, when, to use Lewis' own words, MacDonald "baptized his imagination." In this short introduction to the life and works of MacDonald exclusively written for Hovel Audio, renowned scholar Rolland Hein is your guide through MacDonald's Fairyland. You will explore the symbols, motifs, and themes that run through MacDonald's stories, such as "The Wise Woman", "The Golden Key", and "The Princess and the Goblin". Moreover, Hein introduces you to MacDonald's ability to take his own imagination into the pulpit, where he preached many powerfully moving sermons. You are sure to experience a renewed sense of respect for one of Christianity's best storytellers.

Brief but a nice broad scope

I appreciated the coverage of both a biography and a survey of his work and thought. I highly recommend this book to anyone who knows the work of MacDonald our would like to.

A man for all seasons

A brief and concise of a man a few of us never considered. One of the greatest pastors of all time. He changed my view of Christ.
