Pure wisdom and poetic insight into the heart and nature of God.

I don't really know what to make of this book. At times it was boring, at other times baffling, and at still other times deeply profound. I felt like the ending was rather anticlimactic. I am a huge fan of MacDonald's Unspoken Sermons and have great respect for his almost poetic approach to theology. For whatever reason, though, Lilith just didn't connect for me. Maybe I will try again in a few years.
