We are watching Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe at church. The person teaching the class had a few of Lewis' books set up for people to thumb through with one exception. At the end was a beaten up old book called Phantastes by George Macdonald
. According to the teacher Lewis was taking a long train ride and picked the book up at the station. The book is still in print, but if you don't want to shell out the $13 to buy it there is a free down loadable
version. The book was written in the 1800's so there aren't any copyright laws to worry about. Enjoy. I wonder how people reacted to a minister using fairy tales and fantasy to get the message of Christ across?
Just for the record, some wisenheimers got a little confused. It's CS Lewis.
