About the Author

George MacDonald (1824 1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister. Though no longer well known, his works (particularly his fairy tales and fantasy novels) have inspired admiration in such notables as W. H. Auden, J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Madeleine L'Engle. For instance, Lewis wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his "master": "Picking up a copy of Phantastes one day at a train-station bookstall, I began to read. A few hours later," said Lewis, "I knew that I had crossed a great frontier." G. K. Chesterton cited The Princess and the Goblin as a book that had "made a difference to my whole existence." Elizabeth Yates wrote of Sir Gibbie, "It moved me the way books did when, as a child, the great gates of literature began to open and first encounters with noble thoughts and utterances were unspeakably thrilling." Even Mark Twain, who initially disliked MacDonald, became friends with him, and there is some evidence that Twain was influenced by MacDonald.

There are a LOT of sermons in this book. Not all of them did much for me, and wading through his LOOONG sentences wasn't worth it for every sermon. But for the ones that were worth it ... Life changing. Whether you agree with all of McDonald's conclusions, we all need a healthy dose of his attitude and insights.

After hearing C.S. Lewis and others rave about George MacDonald, I tried reading this book. Unfortunately, where you can see the tones that influenced C.S. Lewis, it appears that they came to vastly different conclusions. I think there is a reason this hasn't become a Christian standard, as it has questionable theology that I wouldn't recommend to others.

Great go to book, especially if you are a George MacDonald fan! I pick and choose different sermons I want to read. Not a sit and read in one setting kinda book! It's a chew it up in small bites kind! Great table of contents so you can pick sermon topic. Though I am normally used to reading MacDonalds fairy tales, this is a solid theological read that I will refer to and enjoy for many years!

Each of these "Unspoken" sermons intensively deals with difficult Bible verses. I have been blessed with new insights each time I have read one of them. The sermon titles are phrases describing the verses to be examined. The concepts taught in the verses are thoroughly discussed, ending with an emphatic restatement of the title. This is immediately followed by an implied "but" and statement of the next sermon's title. The sermon subjects are arranged in a logical order enabling each to stand by itself while drawing the reader into the the following sermon.

The writer, George MacDonald (1824-1905), was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister. He was one of the most respected authors of his generation in 19th century Scotland. MacDonald was the mentor of fellow writer Lewis Carroll. C. S. Lewis regarded MacDonald, who lived a century before him, as his "master." Lewis wrote,"I know hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continually close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself." MacDonald's writings have been cited as a major literary influence by many other notable authors including W. H. Auden, J. R. R. Tolkien, Christian author Oswald Chambers and Walter de la Mare. G. K. Chesterton said one of MacDonald's books "made a difference to my whole existence." Even Mark Twain, who initially disliked MacDonald, became friends with him.

I recommend these delightful and uplifting "sermons" to every Bible lover and truth seeker.
