In Penguins and Golden Calves, Madeleine L'Engle uses the startling beauty of Antarctica as a backdrop for her discussion of how icons-everyday "windows to God"-reveal to us the glory of our Maker. She also shows how those icons can become idols that cripple us spiritually. With captivating stories and insightful metaphors, L'Engle brings us to a deeper understanding of the God's presence in our lives.
Despite protests and warnings from friends and family, author Madeleine L'Engle, at the age of seventy-four, embarked on a rafting trip to Antarctica. Her journey through the startling beauty of the continent led her to write "Penguins and Golden Calves, "a captivating discussion of how opening oneself up to icons, or everyday "windows to God," leads to the development of a rich and deeply spiritual faith.
Here, L'Engle explains how ordinary things such as family, words, the Bible, heaven, and even penguins can become such windows. She also shows how such a window becomes an idol-a penguin becomes a "golden calf"-when we see it as a reflection of itself instead of God.
With delightful language, insightful metaphor, and personal stories, L'Engle brings readers to a deeper understanding of themselves, their faith, and the presence of God in their daily lives.
