The Truth in Jesus brings together a new collection of sermons and essays that explore the source and essence of truth. GEORGE MACDONALD (1824-1905), Scottish Victorian writer, began his adult life as a clergyman. After a short career in the pulpit, he turned to writing, and with publication of his fiction in the 1860s, he became widely known throughout Britain and the United States.

Hector Macdonald's Truth explores how communicators spin reality . Truth (the book) made me feel appropriately uncomfortable because the text created opportunities for self-reflection on my most basic beliefs.

Hector Macdonald's Truth explores how communicators spin reality, whether in the name of clarity or skullduggery. Macdonald is a deft guide to a topic that could not be more timely. ―William Poundstone, author of Head in the Cloud. Truth is a fascinating look at how such an abstract concept can be shaped to many purposes, the ethics of bending the truth, and what consumers can do to analyze the innumerable truths presented to u. ―Booklist.

I know says MacDonald, what the father of lies whispers to those to whom such teaching is distasteful: 'It is the doctrine of works'.

But ye did not so learn Christ; if so be that ye heard him, and were taught in him, even as truth is in Jesus: that ye put away, as concerning your former manner of life, the old man, which waxeth corrupt after the lusts of deceit. I know says MacDonald, what the father of lies whispers to those to whom such teaching is distasteful: 'It is the doctrine of works'.

George MacDonald (10 December 1824 - 18 September 1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister

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. His writings have been cited as a major literary influence by many notable authors including W. H. Auden, C. S. Lewis, J. R. Tolkien, Walter de la Mare, E. Nesbit and Madeleine L'Engle. C. Lewis wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his "master": "Picking up a copy of Phantastes one day at a train-station bookstall, I began to read.

What is truth? And how can we know truth? After Jesus had been arrested, He found Himself standing before Pontius Pilate, the Roman Governor of Judea. He had been accused of blasphemy, of stirring up the people to revolution, and it was rumored He called Himself a King. When Jesus refers to himself as the way, the truth, and the life, he is giving us a better way to live our lives through him. He is showing us that through following him daily in faith, he will lead us to a better, richer, more meaningful life than we could ever find on our own.

Pray to him tolet thee know the truth, that if needful thou mayst repent . If thou didst wrong,I am well content to know that thou wilt be sorry therefor as soon asthou seest it, and before that thou canst not, thou must not, be sorry. I am sure that what thou knowest to be right that thou will do, and itseemeth as if God himself were content with that for the time.

Each new generation rediscovers George MacDonald, as his son Greville predicted. The Truth in Jesus brings together a new collection of sermons and essays that explore the source and essence of truth. Thanks to Michael Phillips's skillful editing, these thoughtful insights into what truth is, how we come to know truth, and how God reveals truth through his Son speak to readers as clearly today as they did during MacDonald's lifetime. Phillips retains MacDonald's message and style, then adds his perceptive commentary on MacDonald's work, making the nineteenth-century Scottish writer's wisdom accessible to twenty-first-century readers.

I LOVE George MacDonald, but I found this one book to be pretty difficult to get into, to grasp. Which is WAY DIFFERENT than my usual response with his books. So, it's good, of course, but if you're a new MacDonald reader - choose something else first!

A most excellent thought provoking & timely classic!
  • Zulkigis
MacDonald's writing flows from such imaginative insight...truth in Jesus, the analogy of the flower...his continuous stream of arguments & analogies lead us to the Spirit of Life...to the real thing...and we find that the imaginative nature of his fiction reflects reality... Michael's comments after each "sermon" are very helpful for internalizing & getting your hands around what MacDonald says.
