    Sometimes Madeleine writes things that are a littleout there When you come across those parts, don t get hung up Just say to yourself, Ha ha Oh that Madeleine and keep reading Judy HougenI loved this quote Addie Zierman added to the foreword After reading several books by Madeleine L Engle recently, I can honestly say that I have felt both uplifted by her books and at other times puzzled At this point, I m going to keep on reading because I always walk away with some thoughts that e Some

    L Engle s analysis of the Incarnation is part autobiography and part theography It s a wonderful story of choosing love over power and truth over fact I enjoy L Engle s voice and her openness about her own feelings and beliefs, along with the stories she shares about family, friends, and loved ones Her interpretation of Scripture is true to the Word, and she always brings all her opinions back to the Bible Nothing that she says is not based in the Gospels She does t form random opinions tha L Engle

    I like that Madeleine L Engle can t be put in a box Madeleine thinks like Madeleine To me, the best part of this book was when she described how her thinking about God was influenced by her family and by the thinking boxes she encountered in various schools and churches As much as I admire her strong voice, her writing doesn t usually draw me in and win me over It s all head, and I wantheart This book is no exception Bright Evening Star is organized around the incarnation It s not I like that Madeleine L Engle can t be put in a
