9780786128273: Getting to Know Jesus

In this inspirational collection of twelve sermons, George MacDonald offers compelling insight into the life of Jesus Christ. MacDonald stressed the necessity of salvation and the importance of combining Christian faith with obedience to Jesus' teachings. He also believed that God's universal grace would eventually save everyone. Though written in the mid-nineteenth century, these sermons, including "Mirrors of Christ," "Glorified through Trouble, "Salvation from Sin," and "The Giver of Rest," continue to provide contemporary followers with the spiritual guidance they seek. For those who wish to know Jesus better, this is a book you will want to hear.

About the Author:

George MacDonald (1824-1905), Scottish children's author and novelist, was educated at Aberdeen University before training as a Congregational minister. Finding his own individualistic views unacceptable to his parish, he gradually turned to literature. He published over fifty volumes of fiction, verse, children's stories, and sermons but is remembered chiefly for his fairy stories, including The Princess and the Goblin (1872) and its sequel The Princess and Curdie (1873).



Lloyd James (a.k.a. Sean Pratt) has been narrating since 1996 and has recorded over six hundred audiobooks. He is a seven-time winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award and has twice been a finalist for the prestigious Audie Award. His critically acclaimed performances include Elvis in the Morning by William F. Buckley Jr. and Searching for Bobby Fischer by Fred Waitzkin, among others.

From AudioFile:

Scottish author George MacDonald's fantasies influenced both J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis, but before he wrote fiction, he was a Congregationalist minister. These 12 sermons, which focus on the nature of Christ, are as intelligent as his fiction. However, they seem fierce, combative, and dated in ways that his fiction does not. Lloyd James does what he can with the sermons. His delivery is impassioned, and listeners can readily imagine the minister's body writhing with passion. While the sermons are intended to give guidance and inspiration, listeners can also hear the genesis of MacDonald's fictional talents in his imaginings about the mind and intent of God.
