"I know hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continually close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself," C.S. Lewis wrote about nineteenth-century writer, clergyman and Christian thinker George MacDonald. Lewis, who saw MacDonald as an important Christian teacher, compiled this collection of 365 passages from MacDonald's work. These wise words will instruct, uplift and inspire readers of today, just as they did when first published in the nineteenth century, and again when read by Lewis in the twentieth.
George MacDonald (1824-1905) was born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Briefly a clergyman, then a professor of English literature at Bedford and King's College in London, he was a popular lecturer and published poetry, stories, novels, and fairy tales.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was born in Belfast. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Magdalen College, Oxford, and later was Professor of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, where he remained until his death in 1963. He is the most important Christian writer of the 20th century and the author of the world famous The Chronicles of Narnia series, numerous works of literary criticism, and four distinguished novels.
