What to expect

“I know hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continually close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself.” So wrote C. S. Lewis of George MacDonald, the Scottish pastor and novelist who had a profound impact on Lewis’ own literary and spiritual career.

Here Lewis gathers 365 of MacDonald’s most inspirational lines, prefacing them with details of the effects MacDonald had on Lewis himself. From “Inexorable Love” to “God at the Door”, MacDonald’s words will edify and uplift, just as they did for C. S. Lewis.
