George MacDonald was a Victorian Scottish writer and a Christian minister. He wrote theological works and was a pioneer in the fantasy genre – though he always considered himself a poet first and foremost. His unorthodox views resulted in his expulsion from the pulpit relatively early in his life, at which point he pursued his writing career with fervor. He wrote sermons, essays, fantasy, and romance novels. His works inspired many great authors: G.K. Chesterton (“[MacDonald is] one of the three or four greatest men of the 19th century”), W.H. Auden (“[MacDonald is] one of the most remarkable writers of the 19th century”), Oswald Chambers (“how I love that man!”), and most notably C.S. Lewis.
In The Hope of the Gospel, George MacDonald writes about what it means to be a Christian, and how the Gospel is a source of never-ending hope for sinful humans. In this book of essays, we step into the mind of a Victorian preacher as he explores his interpretation of scripture. George MacDonald spent his whole life searching for truth and trying to better understand the things of God – his writings are a beautiful testament to that.

Notable Quotes:

“The Lord has come to wipe away our tears. He is doing it; he will have it done as soon as He can; and until He can, He would have them flow without bitterness; to which end He tells us it is a blessed thing to mourn, because of the comfort on its way.”
“Light unshared is darkness. To be light indeed, it must shine out. It is of the very essence of light, that it is for others.”
“Foolish is the man, and there are many such men, who would rid himself or his fellows of discomfort by setting the world right, by waging war on the evils around him, while he neglects that integral part of the world where lies his business, his first business, namely, his own character and conduct.”
