The Harmony Within: The Spiritual Vision of George MacDonald takes a close look at the religious roots of the 19th century writer George MacDonald. The book introduces MacDonald, one of the most original thinkers of his time, and author of 30 novels, numerous fairy tales, as well as sermons, essays, and poetry. Many authors of the period were profoundly influenced by MacDonald, such as John Ruskin, Lewis Carroll, Charles Kingsley and later C. S. Lewis, Madeleine L'Engle, G. K. Chesterton, and W.H. Auden. So many readers 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.
