Thoughtful Christian drama2018年9月4日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I first encountered the works of George MacDonald upon reading his short story “The Wise Woman”. I have read (and reread) the stories featuring Thomas Wingfold multiple times. This story of an honest cleric struggling with his faith is inspiring and well written. The subplots involving his parishioners, including one with an awful secret, are also well done.
Not for the feint of heart2013年9月25日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
George MacDonald was a popular contemporary of Charles Dickens and you may see similarities in language and writing style. There's no question that this is a Victorian novel. MacDonald's work was reintroduced to the public in the 1980s by Bethany House Publishers with several reedited and abridged versions. This one was re-titled The Curate's Awakening and tells the story of the spiritual birth of an Anglican clergyman who had entered the ministry (as was common then) as one of a few career paths open to gentlemen of his day, and had little to do with the call of God. Unlike the abridged version, which was purposely streamlined for "today's reader", this original version presents all the author's lengthy arguments and discussions of faith, conscience and the full meaning of Salvation through Christ. Well worth the time.
My FAVORITE2013年3月6日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
LOVE IT! It's my favorite of all of MacDonald's books--and that's saying a lot! It starts slowly (be warned), but once you get past the beginning, you can't put it down. My husband isn't much of a reader, so I had him read the first few chapters to me--he still wasn't too interested. Then he started reading the rest by himself and told me a day later, "I don't care about getting anything done because all I want to do is finish reading this book!" I've read and reread it so many times, but every time I walk away changed in my heart.
My First and The Beginning of My Adventures With George MacDonald2016年6月5日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
My first MacDonald novel, which kept me looking for more. I read an edited version, but looked for the original later. George MacDonald's writing has always kept my attention and my interest as well as I longed for more, after reading anything he has written. The only story of his I've tried to read and can never finish, though it's fascinating and well written, is "Phantastes". Not sure why. :)
