366 excerpts from the works of L’Engle arranged as daily readings by editor Chase.
L’Engle was of a previous generation (1918 to 2007) and her works reflect it. Very much hung up on the issues and trends of mid-twentieth century, her ideas have a quaint aspect which is not immediately obvious to the reader. Not that many of her thoughts aren’t profound, but they reflect a Cold war environment that current readers will have trouble understanding. She, and we, thought nuclear holocaust was a real possibility. Her reflections on nature and man’s place in it are still relevant.
L’Engle was a well-known Christian fiction writer. These “reflections” could well be used a daily devotions. Worthwhile.
