Overview
In this collection selected by C. S. Lewis are 365 selections from MacDonald?s inspiring and challenging writings.

Publishers Description

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's 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.

Roots  Sep 12, 2005
Always interesting to discover the roots of an author's world.

(By the way, this site's packaging/quality is 5*.)
 
I guess I just don't like anthologies  Jul 31, 2005
This is probably the only book written by C.S. Lewis that I will give less that 4 stars. I think it's great that he wanted to have an anthology of George Macdonald, but it just didn't work. Don't get me wrong, the quotes are great, but it just doesn't really give you an idea of who Goerge MacDonald is, and what his writing is like. Nearly all of the quotations are from his book of sermons, which is not one of his most popular works. If you have heard of George MacDonald and want to check him out, I would reccomend just jumping straight into The Princess and the Goblin or one of his other works. This just isn't the "usual" George MacDonald, and you don't get much of a hint as to what his "fantasies," which are what he is famous for, are like.
 
The Highest Condition of the Human Will  Mar 20, 2005
George McDonald has lots to say about how to act when you are not feeling well loved or connected to God. In short, how do we act when we're unsure of our faith or angry?

For example:

The Highest Condition of the Human Will

The highest condition of the human will is in sight. . . . I say not the highest condition of the Human Being; that surely lies in the Beatific Vision, in the sight of God. But the highest condition of the Human Will, as distinct, not as separated from God, is when, not seeing God, not seeming to grasp Him at all, it yet holds Him fast.-George McDonald quoted in C.S. Lewis George McDonald

I don't know exactly what he is trying to say, but what I think it means is that when we are shaken and unsure our continued faith is ever more amazing. What does this have to do with Good Samaritans? I hope something, or I am going to lose my key demo. I know that when I am not feeling good or happy that I am less likely to help others and pay attention to my principles. I think if others have the same problem we need to ask ourselves, "what does my mood have to do with what is right and wrong?" I think McDonald would say that a person with a strong will acts the same regardless of how he or she feels.--Luke T. GoodSamaritanblog.com
 
Having not read this particular book...  Sep 20, 2004
Maybe it's too easy to take one thing that someone says (anyone says) and not make sense from it once it's out of context. I recommend reading MacDonald in context. His insight is impeachable if you're goal is to know God and be known by God. Otherwise, MacDonald's goal was never to write a theological treatise. Then again, neither was this Jesus' goal when he was here. "heptazane" (review above) should beware of being so flippant with things he doesn't fully understand.
 
Just because it feels profound doesn't make it true.  Mar 2, 2004
If you like to get people's perspective on God, then this is a good book. If you want emotion and reason to pull together to reveal truth, then it flounders.

Even as does C.S. Lewis, George McDonald has a tendency to make movingly worded, but scripturally, or even reasonably, baseless statements. Culture and emotion are on his side, but that doesn't make him right.

For example, he subtly comes from the perspective that to truly know God is to never to plan, want, or put forth effort. Adam created the names of the animals, king David created the pieces for the temple of Solomon, and Moses gave the people the law. God sustained them and gave them their creative abilities, but it wasn't through sitting around waiting for God that they were able to bring these things about.

Further, he has the self righteousness that says "what a sinner I am", followed by "you should do such-and-such" or "we should all try to do such-and-such" meaning "you should do such-and-such". And has an over inflated view of the righteousness of children.

However, I share his view that we are all sinners, held back from becoming monsters by the chains of God, and I identify with his melancholy, but I finish the book holding him in equal regard to C.S. Lewis. Read that however you please.
