Meet the Victorian poet, pastor, and storyteller who touched those he knew and inspired Christian writers like C. S. Lewis and G. K. Chesterton. Learn about his life, times, and work in this issue of Christian History & Biography!
Inside this issue you'll find:
"Life and Religion Are One" - George MacDonald embraced all experiences, both joys and hardships, as vehicles of grace-and inspired others to do the same.
Sacred Story - With the pen as his pulpit, MacDonald used fiction to show the relevance of scriptural truth to the problems of his age.
The Power of Books - For the Victorians, reading could be the doorway to doubt-or to faith.
A Faith That Feels - Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth translated Romantic ideals into the language of Christian experience.
"A Born Preacher" - MacDonald's sermons passed the Victorian tests of earnestness and practicality with flying colors.
Love at the Heart of the Universe - For MacDonald, belief in God and obedience to God went hand in hand.
The Wise Imagination - MacDonald's legacy is his reminder that we are creative beings because we are made in the image of a Creator.
