Informing the Inklings

“This marvelous collection of essays appeals to both the intellect and the imagination, drawing us to consider stories from a past generation as doorways for meaning and transformation today. The connection between George MacDonald and his circle to C. S. Lewis and his circle has never been made so clear.”

- Bruce R. Johnson, General Editor of Sehnsucht: The C. S. Lewis Journal
