Publisher's Summary

C. S. Lewis wrote of George MacDonald: "I know hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continually close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself." Lewis also claimed that everything he wrote was influenced by this Scottish pastor and novelist who lived a century before Lewis. George MacDonald serves as an act of appreciation, with Lewis gathering 365 of the best and most profound lines from his mentor as well as providing a preface detailing the impact MacDonald had on Lewis' own literary and spiritual career. Ranging from "Inexorable Love" to "God at the Door", these words will instruct and uplift, like they did for C.S. Lewis himself.

Meditations from Mac Donald

These are an excellent collection of George Mac Donald's quotes. Because these quotes deserve meditation and reflection, they would better be considered in writing rather than audio.

Words from a big one era

While the words are from a person long dead, I found that in some ways what he was facing is the same as today.

Outstanding!

So much pure wisdom. Like drinking from a crystal fountain. No wonder C. S. Lewis called him his master. George MacDonald is my favorite author.

A wonderful selection of Christian Wisdom

CS Lewis gives George McDonald high praise as the author to whom he went for Christian wisdom and truth and testifies that he quoted him in virtually everything he wrote. So what a blessing it is to have CS Lewis choose for us the very Best of McDonald! The reason I gave this book for stars overall rather than five is that, as another reviewer has stated, A readable version of the book would better support the considerable reflection required on many of the thoughts offered by McDonald. I Combined the benefits of the verbal presentation by purchasing both the Kindle and the audible version so that I could read along while listening and pause and reflect when they going got challengingThis book is for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of his Christian worldview.
