A Light So Lovely, The Spiritual Legacy of Madeleine L'Engle - a review
A Light So Lovely is a must read book for fans of L'Engle's work. Sarah Arthur shares both the brilliance of L'Engle and her flaws, which I appreciate as no one is perfect. I found it amusing that her children did not remember instances she wrote about in her nonfiction books the way she did. I have had similar instances with my own family.
I remember being warned of Madeleine L'Engle's books as being "New Age" before I had read any of them. I'm glad I didn't listen for once I read her nonfiction, starting with A Circle of Quiet, and her well known Newbery Award Winner, A Wrinkle In Time... I didn't find anything New Age about either one of those books (and I was looking).
One of the aspects of this book I liked best was the discussion about L'Engle's at times mixed theology and legalism verses liberalism as they pertain to Christian books in general. I thought the discussion was very well balanced and put words to my own way of thinking as a conservative Christian who loves L'Engle's books.
I highly recommend A Light So Lovely!
