Haste when thy soul, the high-born thing divine, Is torn by passion’s raving, maniac throng. 12. Fair freshness of the God-breathed spirit air, Pass through my soul, and make it strong to love; Wither with gracious cold what demons dare. Shoot from my hell into my world above; Let them drop down, like leaves the sun doth sear, And flutter far into the inane and bare, Leaving my middle-earth calm, wise, and clear.

George MacDonald (10 December 1824 – 18 September 1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister. He was a pioneering figure in the field of fantasy literature and the mentor of fellow writer Lewis Carroll.

My soul must unawares have sunk awry. Some care, poor eagerness, ambition of work, Some old offence that unforgiving did lurk, Or some self-gratulation, soft and sly- Something not thy sweet will, not the good part, While the home-guard looked out, stirred up the old murk, And so I gloomed away from thee, my Heart. 15. Therefore I make provision, ere I begin To do the thing thou givest me to do, Praying,-Lord, wake me oftener, lest I sin.

This is a new edition of a popular classic, which offers a prayer for each day of the year, reflecting on some aspect of God's relationship with us. George MacDonald had a great influence on CS Lewis and was instrumental in his conversion. The prayers are introduced by a preface from Colin Duriez, who is well-respected authority on CS Lewis and his circle.

Not a review of the content of this because I love George MacDonald but this is one of the most disappointing 'books' I have ever purchased at Amazon. It looks like someone printed it on their office copy machine. The text is miniscule, and it's faded at the edges on some pages. The paper and binding are horribly cheap and the photo on the front also looks like an extremely poor quality scan of a scan of a copy of a photograph. I don't know who put this together but I wish I had never purchased it. I guess this is what happens when something gets so old that it falls into the public domain and any yahoo can "publish" a book using someone else's content. Avoid at all costs.

I gave this book as a gift, but I have been reading my copy almost every day for about 15 years. George Macdonald is not known for his poetry, but he is known for his honest and pure commitment to Christ. You will relate to his writing with an intimacy that leaves you feeling better just knowing that someone else out there has been in your shoes. George Macdonald does not preach at you, he talks to God from a contrite heart, helping me enter into the Holy of Holies with boldness and an honest look at myself.

Got a chuckle about the Amazon questions about this book, like it is a mystery novel or a bodice ripper romance. This is a daily devotional of poems - one for each day of the year - written by George MacDonald. Short, one page, poems of Christian devotion. If you are into such things - as I am - this is a fine collection. I am thinking of another small book in a similar vein; Oswald Chambers "My Utmost for His Highest". If you like one, chances are you will like the other. Recommended.

5-stars for MacDonald's beautiful poems. 1-star for the publisher's design of the physical book/binding. The publisher for the book I received is Bibliolife. The cover is unattractive and feels like a cheep knock-off. The binding is stiff and the spine is blank with no title or author info. I returned the hardcover and ordered the paperback, saving $20 and getting a nicer book cover and binding.

To be clear, my complaint is with Bibliolife's tasteless packaging, not with MacDonald's poems. In future, I will stick with other publishers like Johannesen or Sunrise Books for hardcovers of George McDonald's classic works.

One of the greatest examples of cogent writing I've ever seen. He could say more in seven lines than many can say in a book.

This work by McDonald is a masterpiece. Book in full print is pretty great. It would be 5 stars if they had spent a few minutes to make sure sections properly fit on their own pages. I'd recommend getting this.

These sonnets are amazing - words to savor like the finest of tastes, and aromas. Like music that winds itself around one's heart. This book is a treasure.
This book has blown open daily engagement of poetry for me. Following the invitation in the introduction, I've been writing response poems to G-Mac's kick-ass daily poems. So much good stuff in this book - highly recommended.
