George MacDonald is amazing and any time I read one of his books, my walk with Jesus is challenged.He often focuses on themes of obedience and charity, especially in regards to the poor and suffering. This one was a little challenging because of the Scottish dialect, but also fun for that very reason. This story deals with a young pastor who is hiding a dark secret, and God's loving ways of bringing truth to light, and His lost ones back to Himself...as appropriate for today as it was when it was written.
