All that I know of George MacDonald I have learned either from his own books or from the biography (George MacDonald and His Wife) which his son, Dr. Greville MacDonald, published in 1924; nor have I ever, but once, talked of him to anyone who had met him. For the very few facts which I am going to mention I am therefore entirely dependent on Dr. MacDonald.

I've read across quite a few lines of thinking relating to the Christian faith - C.S.Lewis is a hugh influence in my estimation and how he personally impacts my journey - although, Geo. MacDonald was foundational for what compelled Mr.Lewis to write and this book is a must have for any soul searching for the heart of The Creator and provides a glimpse of His heart towards those that seek Him.

Many thanks, a beautiful addition to my library.

Although I have never read George MacDonald before, I figured if he is one of the more influential writers for C.S. Lewis, that I could certainly check out his "best of" book.
The intro from Lewis is wonderful, and explains his regarding MacDonald as "his master." Lewis says that he has never written a book in which he hasn't quoted from MacDonald, and one can see after reading this book how many of Lewis' thoughts may have been shaped by MacDonald.
My favorite entry in the anthology is entitled "The Knowledge of God," and reads:
To say Thou art God, without knowing what the Thou means -- of what use is it? God is a name only, except we know God.

This anthology was edited/assembled by the late C. S. Lewis, and contains many of his favorite passages from the published works and sermons of George MacDonald. MacDonald was C.S. Lewis' "literary Christian mentor" - to quote this perhaps most popular and effective 20th Century Christian apologist (i.e. Lewis).
Many of the short quotations/exerpts marvelously synthesize Jesus' sayings and the Apostles' teachings into visual images. I particularly find the "Our God is a Living Fire" series.

I have never enjoyed the writings of George MacDonald, and even though Lewis tried to select "the best of" with his anthology, I did not benefit from reading this book. The fine introduction by Lewis is what prevents this book from receiving a rating of 1. Don't bother buying this unless you want to read what Lewis wrote.
