Publisher's Description

For over fifty years, L'Engle has been delighting and inspiring readers with her warm, eloquent prose, and inspirational poetry. She continues this tradition with Bright Evening Star, a personal reflection of the mystery and majesty of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. Bright Evening Star provides a glimpse into the life stories of this prolific author and her encounters with God. With a foreword by John Tesh, L'Engle invites us on a spiritual adventure that leads to hope, joy, and a closer relationship with Jesus. "Christmas," says Madeleine L'Engle, "should be a time of awed silence." If you're looking for a unique and Christ-centered Christmas meditation, Bright Evening Star will be a rich and delightful discovery -- year round!

Author Bio

Madeleine L'Engle was the author of more than forty-five books for all ages, among them the beloved A Wrinkle in Time, awarded the Newbery Medal; A Ring of Endless Light, a Newbery Honor Book; A Swiftly Tilting Planet, winner of the American Book Award; and the Austin family series of which Troubling a Star is the fifth book. L'Engle was named the 1998 recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards award, honoring her lifetime contribution in writing for teens.

Ms. L'Engle was born in 1918 in New York City. She wrote her first book, The Small Rain, while touring with Eva Le Gallienne in Uncle Harry. She met Hugh Franklin, to whom she was married until his death in 1986, while they were rehearsing The Cherry Orchard, and they were married on tour during a run of The Joyous Season, starring Ethel Barrymore.

Ms. L'Engle retired from the stage after her marriage, and the Franklins moved to northwest Connecticut and opened a general store. After a decade in Connecticut, the family returned to New York.

After splitting her time between New York City and Connecticut and acting as the librarian and writer-in-residence at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Madeleine L’Engle died on September 7, 2007 at the age of 88.

Editorial Reviews

"In this warm and welcoming book?Madeleine L'Engle steers us away from the sterile, intellectual approach of Christian scholars and unravels God's entrance into this world with stories and personal reflections. She tosses aside the hat of a theologian and adorns herself in the flowing robes of a host, beckoning us to explore with her the Incarnation of Jesus Christ."
--from the foreword by John Tesh, recording artist and musician

"L'Engle's Bright Evening Star moves from the mysterious, imaginative faith of childhood, through doubt, inquiry and evolving understanding, to the deep and knowledgeable faith of spiritual maturity--truly, the Incarnation played out in a human life. You'll find your own story here."
--Molly Wolf, author of Angels and Dragons: Of Sorrow, God and Healing
