Product Description

Bestselling and beloved author Madeleine L'Engle, Newbery winner for A Wrinkle in Time, was known the world round for her imaginative spirit and stories. She was also known to spark controversy - too Christian for some, too unorthodox for others. Somewhere in the middle was a complex woman whose embrace of paradox has much to say to a new generation of readers today.

A Light So Lovely paints a vivid portrait of this enigmatic icon's spiritual legacy, starting with her inner world and expanding into fresh reflections of her writing for readers today. Listen in on intimate interviews with L'Engle's literary contemporaries such as Philip Yancey and Luci Shaw, L'Engle's granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis, and influential fans such as Makoto Fujimura, Nikki Grimes, and Sarah Bessey, as they reveal new layers to the woman behind the stories we know and love. A vibrant, imaginative read, this book pulls back the curtain to illuminate L'Engle's creative journey, her persevering faith, and the inspiring, often unexpected ways these two forces converged.

For anyone earnestly searching the space between sacred and secular, miracle and science, faith and art, come and find a kindred spirit and trusted guide in Madeleine - the Mrs Whatsit to our Meg Murry - as she sparks our imagination anew.

Editorial Reviews

Synopsis: Beloved author Madeleine L'Engle (November 29, 1918 - September 6, 2007), and Newbery winner for her novel 'A Wrinkle in Time', was known the world round for her imaginative spirit and stories. She was also known to spark controversy -- too Christian for some, too unorthodox for others. Somewhere in the middle was a complex woman whose embrace of paradox has much to say to a new generation of readers today. 'A Light So Lovely: The Spiritual Legacy of Madeleine L'Engle' by Sarah Arthur (who is the preliminary fiction judge for the Christianity Today Book Awards, through which she grades on a L'Engle-inspired curve) paints a vivid portrait of this enigmatic icon's spiritual legacy, starting with her inner world and expanding into fresh reflections of her writing for readers today. There are intimate interviews with L'Engle's literary contemporaries such as Philip Yancey and Luci Shaw, L'Engle's granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis, and influential fans such as Makoto Fujimura, Nikki Grimes, and Sarah Bessey, that reveal new layers to the woman behind the stories so well known and loved. A vibrant, imaginative read, 'A Light So Lovely' pulls back the curtain to illuminate L'Engle's creative journey, her persevering faith, and the inspiring, often unexpected ways these two forces converged. Critique: Impressively informative, exceptionally well organized and presented, and a simply delight to read from beginning to end, 'A Light So Lovely: The Spiritual Legacy of Madeleine L'Engle' is a 'must' for the legions of Madeleine L'Engle fans. While especially and unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library collections, it should be noted for students, academia, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that 'A Light So Lovely: The Spiritual Legacy of Madeleine L'Engle' is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $9.99).
'A Light So Lovely is an engaging and deeply satisfying book.'
