Product Description

To George MacDonald, all of life's truth could be discovered in an extremely simple two step process: realizing who God is, then obeying Him. He offers a path of discovery to knowing the Father intimately, a path whose only door is obedience. Challenging his readers with the idea that true "knowledge" of God is far more than mental assent to gospel truth, he brings the reader to the feet of a wondrously loving Father who wants to be known in the heart.

Publisher's Description

The words and wisdom of George MacDonald, one of the nineteenth-century's greatest thinkers, are now available in modern paperback editions. Discovering the Character of God and Knowing the Heart of God have been carefully put together by editor Michael Phillips. Combining thematically relevant portions of poetry, sermons, and fiction, each title will help lead serious readers into deeper regions of faith in God.



Knowing the Heart of God presents MacDonald's philosophy for discovering life's great truths. He insisted this could be done in a simple two-step process by first realizing who God is, and then obeying him. MacDonald trumpets obedience as the door in knowing God intimately. A challenging work, Knowing the Heart of God ultimately brings readers to the very feet of a loving father who wants to be known by his faithful.

Author Bio

George MacDonald (1824-1905), Scottish poet, preacher, and novelist was one of the most original and influential writers of Victorian Britain. He wrote over 50 books with millions of copies sold, and he was one of the most popular authors of the day on both sides of the Atlantic.



Drawn to the pulpit early, MacDonald eventually left to pursue his writing. Numbered among Dickens, Trollope, and other giants of the age as a novelist, MacDonald ended his career with over fifty books ranging from fantastical literature, to children's stories, to critical essays, and numerous novels. In addition to writing, MacDonald lectured extensively.



MacDonald's fiction combined the man's immense spiritual understanding with his innate storytelling ability. His works have influenced writers like C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and many others.

    George MacDonald has radically transformed my view of God, causing me to understand that *everything* God does is done out of love. MacDonald also challenged me to take the commands of Jesus as if He really meant us to follow them, and to realize that the only path to spiritual growth is through obedience.

    George MacDonald had tremendous insight into God's nature. This book is excerpts from his other writings that will renew your love for God, change your life, and deliver you from traditional and dead ways of thinking.Know in advance that MacDonald did not believe in an eternal hell; however, if you miss out on being awed and moved to holiness by the love of God because of a problem with his doctrine, you're making a bad mistake.
