I have recently discovered George MacDonald and have decided that until I find out of such a thing already existing, I am going to set about modernising his entire Unspoken Sermons. I’ve found that for myself, modernising them helps them hit home even more (if that were possible), and I think they might make it possible for some others who wouldn’t normally wade through some of the longer sentences to appreciate him. I’ll add them here as PDF attachments.
Each one takes a number of hours to do. I would appreciate any comments people have, either positive or negative, but always constructive! I would suggest reading through his original sermon first, and then reading my translation. Things I’m interested in knowing: what sort of difference did it make? Were some things able to be understood better? Do you think I’ve still captured the heart of what he wrote?
I hope they might be a blessing to some.
I begin with (apparently) his most famous sermon - Justice.
