About-

George MacDonald is a witness to the power of imagination. By using the art of enchantment, he is able to draw readers into another world seemingly more real than this one. What was the power behind his imagination and what drove MacDonald's art? It was his vision of the spiritual life that provided the context for his fantastic fairy tales and other writings.

The Harmony Within: The Spiritual Vision of George MacDonald takes a close look at the religious roots of MacDonald's writing. So many people today are looking for a spiritual connection between God and man, between myth and destiny. George MacDonald's work provides a doorway to other worlds; the ideas behind his writing may help reshape the mythic elements of our lives.
