In MacDonald's novels, the Christian teaching emerges out of the characters and story line, the narrator's comments, and inclusion of sermons given by the fictional preachers. These sermons in the novels are shorter than the ones in the collections of MacDonald's sermons and so are perhaps more accessible for some. In any case, they are both stimulating and thought provoking. It is my opinion that this collection of sermons from ten novels will bring the 'freshness and brilliance' of MacDonald's message to a new generation. Each sermon has an introduction giving some explanation of the setting of the sermon or of the plot, if that is necessary for understanding the sermon. 'A Novel Pulpuit' is the first in what is planned as a bi-annual book series by The Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis and Friends at Taylor University.
