Lewis, and Madeleine L Engle; he is recognized as a mentor to Lewis Carroll and heavily influenced Carroll s decision to submit Alice s Adventures in Wonderland for publication.

Having spent 38 years with my husband in the pastorate, I found the book to be relevant, reverent, and realistic. Our internal struggles of growth plus the stress of dealing with others' difficult problems caused us to lean on the Lord continually for guidance and wisdom. The author, a former Pastor, portrays all of this in a slower-paced novel set in the 1800s. His ability to apply spiritual understandings to everyday people/problems is unsurpassed. I admire MacDonald's writings, and would go so far to say he's my favorite author.

I'd gladly recommend this novel to anyone in pastoral ministry, involved in the "cure of souls." It relates the ministry of a pastor new to his parish and the relationships that he encounters in the course of his service to the community, as well as his own interior wrestling over personal matters. It's slow paced (as befits a story written in the late 1800s), but wonderful.
It's hard to tell how much might be autobiographical from George MacDonald's own life, but clearly his interest in ministering to the hearts and souls of people comes through.

I love George MacDonald's writings. They require slower reading, come from a time when people had the time to meditate on higher values and the importance of leaving a true life. Mr. McDonald shows how a true life in the spirit is woven into our life through the simple events of every day life.

The text of this book is excellent, readable, enjoyable, and moving. However, the illustrations opposite pp. 8, 42,308, and 338 are either blurred or 1/2-2/3 blanked. Returned first copy to Amazon and received a second copy--it too has the same problem with illustrations. Bill A.

A delightfully Christian narrative! I have a friend or two that I feel would benefit from reading this book, I would not feel remiss in compelling them to read it.
