    George MacDonald: Images of His World is an enticing introduction to the life and art of the man C. S. Lewis called "my master." Of MacDonald, Lewis wrote, "I dare not say that he is never in error; but to speak plainly I know hardly any other writer who seems to me closer or more continually close, to the spirit of Christ Himself." Quotations from MacDonald's books and letters complement photographs of places he lived in and wrote about--from northern Scotland to the Italian Riviera, from his birthplace to his gravesite. Here, his life story is told in its visually stunning contexts, reflecting his deep appreciation for the beauty of his Creator's world and offering readers--old and new--a fuller understanding of his ideas and values. Featuring:

    • Biography by Rolland Hein, author of the full-length biography, George MacDonald: Victorian Mythmaker
    • Photography by Larry E. Fink--over 130 photographs of MacDonald sites in Scotland, England, Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy--accompanied by extensive quotations from his fiction, poetry, and letters
    • Chronology of MacDonald's life
    • Complete Bibliography of the writer's works

    Larry E. Fink is Professor of English at Hardin-Simmons University, Abilene, Texas. Along with George MacDonald, his research interests include C. S. Lewis, Walker Percy, and Loren Eiseley. “Street photography” describes his favorite style of photography; he has had one-man shows in local galleries and led several workshops.

    Rolland Hein is Professor Emeritus of English at Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois. Among his publications are George MacDonald: Victorian Mythmaker, The Harmony Within, Christian Mythmakers, and Growing with My Garden: Thoughts on Tending the Soil and the Soul.
