Description

THE 2016 EDITION OF THE DIARY OF AN OLD SOUL HAS OVER 100 BEAUTIFUL NEW IMAGES FROM THE VICTORIAN ERA ACCOMPANYING THE TEXT. THIS IS NOT A HASTILY ASSEMBLED OCR SCAN OR "FACSIMILE EDITION" OF THIS WORK. EVERY LETTER AND WORD OF THE ORIGINAL HAS BEEN RESET AND CAREFULLY PROOFED FOR ACCURACY. I know hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continually close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself. C. S. Lewis THE DIARY OF AN OLD SOUL is a series of beautifully written daily devotionals by one of the most prolific and celebrated Scottish writers and novelists of the Victorian era - George MacDonald (1824 - 1905). He was an internationally renowned speaker and author of faerie stories for adults and children who counted Mark Twain, Lewis Caroll, Ralph Waldo Emerson and John Greenleaf Whittier among his friends and admirers. Among his writings are Phantastes, At the Back of the North Wind, Sir Gibbie, The Princess and the Goblin, Lilith, and The Light Princess. He has been a major influence on writers of the 20th century, including G. K. Chesterton, W. H. Auden, Madeleine L'Engle and more. He directly influenced C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, which includes The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe (a major new motion picture), and J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Day-by-day MacDonald reflects on the sweet and bitter, the happy and sad as he faces the challenges of living the true Christian life. This journal follows the original design of the 1880 edition. Each page of poetry is offset with an illustrated page for the recording of the reader's own thoughts throughout the year in the good company of George MacDonald. This would make a wonderful gift for a Pastor, Bible reader, Theology student, Seminarian, Diarist, or anyone interested in the Christian walk and Holiness. It would also be an ideal gift for anyone interested in Victorian poetry.show more
