Michael Phillips is one of the renowned Christian novelists of our time. He has penned sixty fiction titles of great variety—historical and contemporary; romance, mystery, and thriller. The breadth of Phillips’s audience is a testimony that his writing is universal in its appeal, with thought-provoking spiritual themes known as his “spiritual tunes.” Phillips’s name is often linked with Scotsman George MacDonald, the man whose books helped lead C.S. Lewis to Christianity. Along with his own writing, Phillips’s passion is to make the links between MacDonald and Lewis more widely known. Phillips and his wife, Judy, divide their time between homes in California and Scotland.
“Michael Phillips has the unique ability to recreate not merely the feel but the impact of the classic George MacDonald novels. From Across the Ancient Waters draws you into a world where engaging characters and spiritual insights merge to form a seamless tapestry.”
- Bodie and Brock Thoene, authors of the AD Chronicles and Beyond the Farthest Star
"From the shipwreck on the first page to the lovely tapestry of characters and setting, From Across the Ancient Waters, Michael Phillips's latest novel, is a do-not-miss masterpiece!"
- Kathleen Y'Barbo, award-winning author
As I began reading From Across The Ancient Waters, my first novel on my new Kindle Fire, I realized that the very first “Christian” novel was The Heather Halls of Stonewyke. This was soon followed by the Corrie Belle Hollister series and many of Mr. Phillips other excellent works. Being a girl of fourteen and new to the faith I am ever so glad that these stories were available. All of Michael Phillips’ story lines are interesting and extremely thoughtful. Questions of faith are posed and discussed in gentle and considerate ways, never in a harsh or forceful manner.
From Across The Ancient Waters keeps these characteristics alive. The young Percy, sent away to hopefully reform his bad ways, finds faith, friendship, and adventure in the Welsh countryside. The characters draw you in so that you feel the pangs of young love and the heartache of losing someone you care for. I was not ready for this story to end and am happy to know book two will be out in a few months. The only thing missing was a pronunciation key for the Welsh words; I’m a little rusty on my Welsh.
Phillips tells delightful stories that reflect his astute study of human nature and his passion for words.
