Summary Bright Evening Star Mystery of the Incarnation Wheaton Literary Series

Closer relationship with Jesus Christmas says Madeleine L'Engle should be a time of awed silence If you're looking for a uniue and Christ centered Christmas meditation Bright Evening Star will be a rich and delightful discovery year roun. I really wanted to love this bookI do love Madeleine L Engle for her conversational style her honest and wrestling faith her acceptance and even reverence of the things that reside for now in the realm of mystery also her love for Jesus and familiarity with the gospels The wonder she brings to life while not shying away from the brokenness that is the draw for meHowever her theology seems really bad to me in places esp sovereignty of God free will etcand she puts forward poor arguments against literal 7 day Creation and Calvinism A couple of other points she made just didn t ring true and turned me off from enjoying this book

Bright Evening Star Mystery of the Incarnation Wheaton Literary Series

For over fifty years L'Engle has been delighting and inspiring readers with her warm elouent prose and inspirational poetry She continues this tradition with Bright Evening Star a personal reflection of the mystery and majesty of the Inca. 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 uote 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 enlarge my faith and at other times I smile when I come across something that goes against what I believe because that uote comes to mindI picked this book for the month of December and it was a lovely choice Madeleine s Christian beliefs are largely influenced by her parents and Episcopal background In this book she shares her lifelong love of Jesus and no matter how you feel about her beliefs you can not possibly walk away from this book doubting her relationship and love for God Like me perhaps your own faith and love will be treasured in a deeper wayI highly recommend her books and feel this is worth 5 stars

Madeleine LEngle ì 7 review

Rnation of Jesus Christ Bright Evening Star provides a glimpse into the life stories of this prolific author and her encounters with God With a foreword by John Tesh L'Engle invites us on a spiritual adventure that leads to hope joy and a. 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 that have nothing to do with God I highly recommend this book to anybody struggling with seeing God as wrathful and angry rather than as Love which is what He really is If you re unsure of why bad things happen read this book It s not the Bible but it s a useful tool a second reference I enjoyed it for the affirmation of what I already know and believe It pleased me to read a book by a famous author about the God that I love I m glad that L Engle published a book like this and wasn t afraid to be criticized for writing the truth This book is well written and interesting whether you re a Christian a fan of L Engle or both
