"In this warm and welcoming book, Madeleine L’Engle steers us away from the sterile, intellectual approach of Christian scholars and unravels God’s entrance into this world with stories and personal reflections. She tosses aside the hat of a theologian and adorns herself in the flowing robes of a host, beckoning us to explore with her the Incarnation of Jesus Christ."
–from the foreword by John Tesh, recording artist and musician
"L’Engle’s Bright Evening Star moves from the mysterious, imaginative faith of childhood, through doubt, inquiry and evolving understanding, to the deep and knowledgeable faith of spiritual maturity–truly, the Incarnation played out in a human life. You’ll find your own story here."
–Molly Wolf, author of Angels and Dragons: Of Sorrow, God and Healing
