Baptized Imagination: The Theology of George MacDonald by Kerry Dearborn, Jeremy Begbie, Trevor Hart, Roger Lundin

The imagination has been called, "the principal organ for knowing and responding to disclosures of transcendent truth." This book probes the theological sources of the imagination, which make it a vital tool for knowing and responding to such disclosures. Kerry Dearborn approaches areas of theology and imagination through a focus on the nineteenth century theologian and writer George MacDonald. MacDonald can be seen as an icon whose life and work open a window to the intersection of word, flesh and image.
