This MacDonald collection is wonderful
December 29, 2010
MacDonald was C. S. Lewis's spiritual mentor, even though they did not know each other. He was at his best when writing stories for children. These tales, the one titled and the others in this collection, are eye-opening events for all ages.
Although allegorical, no story in this collection suffers from the heavy hand familiar to anyone who has read Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. Instead, MacDonald's wry sense of humor informs his writing, making it enjoyable to all who read his stories.
A great book but do not stop at this one. MacDonald's other stories are worth reading, particularly, Lilith.
This book has been truly inspiring. The Wise Woman will teach you about yourself and show you what you don't like, that is; if you are open to it. Every Christian needs to contemplate the message George MacDonald is teaching us in this beautiful hidden language. Ask the Holy Spirit, I am sure He will show you in your heart.
