Publisher Description

Celebrating the Works of George MacDonald
George MacDonald inspired the imaginative visions of C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, J.R.R. Tolkien, and so many others. He presents the reader with an enchanted world that is richer than the flattened world of materialism that defines reality for so many. Through this volume, we hope to invite the reader into the world of fantasy en route to discovering a true reality.

Take a tour of the books of this classic Christian author, from his christian fantasy novels for both children and adults as well as his theological works.
