A Light So Lovely: The Spiritual Legacy of Madeleine L’Engle by Sarah Arthur
Published by Zondervan/HarperCollins. Foreword by Charlotte Jones Voiklis.
One of the earliest members of the Chrysostom Society, late author Madeleine L’Engle (A Wrinkle in Time) was known for her imaginative spirit, compelling stories, and bluntly honest faith. She was also known to spark controversy—too Christian for some, too unorthodox for others. Somewhere in the middle was a complex woman whose embrace of paradox has much to say to a new generation of readers.
A Light So Lovely paints a vivid portrait of this enigmatic icon’s spiritual legacy, starting with her inner world and expanding into fresh reflections on her writing for readers today. Featuring interviews with Chrysostom Society members Philip Yancey, Luci Shaw, and Jeffrey Overstreet (among others), the book also engages voices such as L’Engle’s granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis and influential fans such as Makoto Fujimura, Nikki Grimes, and Sarah Bessey. A vibrant, imaginative read, this book pulls back the curtain to illuminate L’Engle’s creative journey, her persevering faith, and the inspiring, often unexpected ways these two forces converged.
