(The Inklings Series is a monthly series featuring the works of my two favorites, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, or books about them. But I don’t want it to be just me chatting about these books, so that’s where y’all come in! I’ll announce the book at least four weeks in advance of when the discussion post will go live, so you have plenty of time to get the book and read it. Then, the following month, I’ll post a discussion post and let the fun begin!!)
George MacDonald had a profound influence on many of the Inklings and since I’ve never read anything of his, I thought it was time to remedy that. Have you read any of his writings? Looking forward to the introduction!
An Anthology: 365 Readings by George MacDonald (C.S. Lewis Editor)
C. S. Lewis said everything he wrote was influenced by George MacDonald. According to Lewis, there is “hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continuously close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself.” Writing a preface and selecting MacDonald’s most poignant passages, Lewis introduces us to these extraordinary treasures. Ranging from “Inexorable Love” to “The Torment of Death,” these words will instruct and uplift.
