Summary

From the creative and ingenious mind of George MacDonald comes a spectacular fairy tale. The plot focuses around young Anodos and his wild journey through a mystical faerie world. Christian author and theologian C.S. Lewis once wrote that reading Phantastes “baptized” his imagination. For adults that thought they were done reading fairy tales, this unusual Christian novel is sure to rekindle a sense of wonder and interest in the supernatural. Luke Getz CCEL Staff Writer
